Day of Wonder

Day of Wonder

It’s the day

of the rising
and the leaving
and the emptiness
with first
the disbelief
and the shock
and the fear
and the helplessness
then the wondering
about the how
and the what
and the what next
and the speculation
and the circling
round it
and round it
with the argument
and the discussion
and gradually
the waiting
and the silence
and the waiting,
and the wondering
and the waiting
and the nearly
despairing
until
the meeting.
