Thursday photo prompt – Waiting #writephoto


Waiting at the doctor’s, do I really want to know?
And they took me away as I screamed “no!no!”
Go to school and get good grades if you want to
Kind of like having a cold and a flu
Time could be fast, time could be slow
And looking harder, I found a burr
Granny baking a cake with a dough
Cat can’t wait, you hear from her purr


She said she’ll be here
And bring me some goodies
Oh that Little Red Riding Hood
Funny little girl, always curious
Loves to smell some flowers and plants
And talks to animals if she sees one or two
Doesn’t she know that it might be dangerous?
Walking through the forest at this time
I told her to walk on the main streets
And not to take the short cut
But she’s a funny little girl
Has a mind of her own
Hope she’s here soon
I’m getting hungry

midnight comes and what’s to happen
waiting for something to happen

we thought this was our haven
waiting for something to happen

promises not being delivered
waiting for something to happen

couldn’t explain, even if we try
waiting for something to happen

could we see the light?
waiting for something to happen*

* A Ghazal is a poem that is made up like an odd numbered chain of couplets, where each couplet is an independent poem. It should be natural to put a comma at the end of the first line. The Ghazal has a refrain of one to three words that repeat, and an inline rhyme that preceedes the refrain. Lines 1 and 2, then every second line, has this refrain and inline rhyme, and the last couplet should refer to the authors pen-name… The rhyming scheme is AA bA cA dA eA etc.
