Just wait. What a beautiful, simple, and complex message.

Poet's Corner


simple is the time

of crow, robin, tree and sprite

simple is the life

that’s waiting

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and taught for 15 years in a wonderful hybrid school. My dissertation topic and research were how certain teachers experience becoming who teachers. In teaching and leanring, I am a boundary-crosser who understands moving ahead is a leap of faith. Teaching is a calling and vocation to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what calls me next. I am an educator, phenomenologist, scholar, boundary-crosser, published poet, author, parent, grandparent, and spouse.

  1. Thanks for the re-blog, glad you liked it 🙂

  2. I agree that they live simple lives by our understanding. My view of their daily lives is perhaps a bit different than yours, my friend. Rather than waiting, I see birds and many other living things doing, moving, building, preparing, wooing, mating, hatching, feeding, watching, resting, eating, singing. Living.


    • Perhaps the two work together. Waiting and living become inseparable perhaps? I love the way you brought many other living things into the picture. They live and wait so differently than humans.

  3. Waiting is an art. Magic happens.
