Still childishly delighted to see my stuff in print, Wait It Out is one of my better insights.

Wait It Out

By Arlene Corwin

You do a pose.
It feels awful, incomplete, a strain.
Wait several minutes if you can.
Shift. Modify. Shift again.
To wait it out will get you there.
To wait it out will get you where
You need to be, the pose fulfilled
But always open to refinement.
As you know, nothing is final,
Each adjustment
Leading to a bonus:
Consciousness distributed,
Continually feeling for more,
More and more,
The more resulting in the new –
A different you.

So if you’re able, wait it out.
The wait itself, wed to your nature,
Has a future unexpected;
Progress in the mind and brain;
New synapses, new power
Over limb and fears.
Wait it out. The clime of waiting
Is exciting:
Minutes, years –
It’s all the same.
