Day 26 of NaPoWriMo 2020

“We were goin’ to meet again and wait”
I stand under the tree in rain and wait

I stand accused of things that I never did
But, for you I will swear in vain and wait

Why not celebrate and toast what we have?
Iced and uncorked is champagne.  And wait.

Thirsty you have made me, thirsty I am.  How
long will it be?  How long must I abstain and wait?

For you, I’ll take on the world, but give me a sign.
I’m going crazy anticipating in this vein and wait.

‘Mirage’ conjures up the visions of exotic islands,
With nowhere to go, all I do is complain and wait.


Notes:  Day 26 of NaPoWriMo 2020.  Off prompt today as well.

Penned another ghazal.  I started with the first line from Bob Dylan’s song “This wheel’s on fire”.  Incidentally, this is 200th post on this blog, it took me a good 8 years to get there.
