Poetry by Robert Stone: Wonder waits

Wonder Waits
a sonnet by Robert Stone
A chance encounter leads to some unknown,
a part of which is striking chords within.
A wonder waits to be by each his own
an entrance to a new let us begin.

A hungry need will not be satisfied,
enough is not a concept understood.
Desire for common threads will not subside
and masks itself as following the good.

A stirring help is always near at hand,
rejection is a fear to overcome.
A yearning for a selfless way to stand
may lead to joy and banish all the numb.

High expectation follows miracle
and disappointment speaks satirical.

-Robert Stone, 4 April 2010
