Stillness, and I wait
Suddenly I go bursting forth into some opening and I shout and scream and flag my arms!
“Bulla bulla boo!”
Until I collapse, exhausted and excited.
Slowly I regain composure.
Stillness, and I wait.
I can do this again and again – my energy will ultimately replenish itself.
I know that I will be ready.
Suffering Love Laughing At Myself is the first poetry book of Adam Fletcher Sasse and is available at
