P A T I E N C E

.

PATIENCE and LOVE agreed to meet at a set time and place

beneath the twenty-third tree in the olive orchard

.

PATIENCE arrived promptly and waited

.

she checked her watch every so often but still

there’s no sign of LOVE

.

.

was it twenty-third tree or the fifty-sixth ? ” she wondered

.

as she made her way over to the fifty-sixth tree,

.

LOVE arrived at tree twenty-three where PATIENCE was noticeably absent

.

.

LOVE waited and waited before deciding he must have the wrong tree and perhaps it was another where they were supposed to meet

.

.

meanwhile,

PATIENCE had arrived at the fifty-sixth tree where LOVE was still nowhere to be seen

.

.

both begin to drift aimlessly around the olive orchard,

almost meeting but never do

.

.

finally,

PATIENCE who was lost and feeling quite resigned,

found herself beneath the same tree where she began

.

she stood there for barely a minute when there was a tap on her shoulder

.

it was LOVE

.

.

.

.

.

where are you? ” she asked

.

i have been searching all my life ” she added

.

stop looking for me ” LOVE replied

.

and i will find you
