Day 11: Prompt: Statement as title

Patience is a Virtue

What do we know of why we wait
and our perceptions of time
It is a strange consequence
of our nervous minds

Quickly our impulses overwhelm
no time to concentrate
there is a difference in the mind
as our thoughts precipitate

But if our minds can impart,
affect some string of time
Could the waiting but in fact
slacken the casting line?

Or does the waiting help to ferment
the seeds ahead we threw
Cause, effect, or happenstance?
The struggle of our worm-eyed view

-A. Ault-
