Another Delay


Thank you for
unscheduled delays,
full stops
in well-planned days.

Traffic jam
or check-out line
we have the time

to stop, to wait,
to share a smile.
Life is not measured
by minute or mile

but in what we do
and what we say
when unplanned speed bumps
slow down our day.

    And the person who has learned to be content in all states will be different. 😉

    I like this.. people will see a difference between one who quietly waits and one who is frustrated or angry.
