Waiting Rooms

These are not the rooms we care much about;

They are holding places

And they usually belong to someone else.

We go to them when we have to, however

and distractedly find a chair.

– a necessary convenience in what usually is an inconvenient spell.

The colors are bland, non-committal

For you see, everyone has to wait

Therefore everyone must be accommodated.

And so not one feels at home.

Lately I’ve been thinking that even home

My sweet home

With committed color and personal touch

Is still a waiting room.

And this new thought is a revelation.
