The Royal (Two Lined) Scepter



I sit
and wait
for His hand
to stretch out
holding that wondrous
stick
with miracle of miracles!
two lines
promising me
the kingdom of my
dreams.

Alas!

I am still waiting
for that royal
scepter
to gain entry
into a world
I can only dream of.

So many
lines
have I seen.
sticks.
one-lined scepters.

Yet the second
eludes me.
Does not deign
to grace me
with its royal tap.

You put my thoughts into words so well, that despite being a lurker, I had to comment. Hope you are soon zoche to the double lined scepter.

If this is what anxious waiting inspires...I can only imagine what glorious poetry unbridled joy will bring forth...
