God’s Time

by Angela Hoffman

Patience is hard when you’re nearing the end of the string 
the kite barely hovering above the ground 
knowing if it doesn’t catch the wind soon, it will settle  
once again. 
My attempts have all exhausted me. 
Have I given too much or too little slack 
run in the wrong direction at the wrong time 
missed my chance? 
I stop, lean into the sensations, with stubborn commitment 
wait for the pull, the catch of the wind. 
There will be no holding back.
