On Time

“We must not allow the clock and the calendar to blind us to the fact that each moment of life is a miracle and mystery.”  -H.G. Wells


I wait for the 12:15 miracle.
It’s late,
but still I sit and wait.
How else will I get to Schenectady?

    I like this, Mary. I hope he gets to Schenectady. I don't know if I could have spelled Schenectady without help.

  6. I'm with Helen. Clifton Park is a much better choice. I lived in Albany for over 8 years, and Schenectady wasn't a first choice of places to go...!
