Patience

This week I read an old folk story retold by Alexandra Franzen, an inspirational writer.

It really spoke to me, so I'd like to share it with you.

"Watch me open this egg," the first woman said.

Cracking the pearly skin against a cold metal bowl,

A swift separation ...a dead yellow gem.

"There, it is open," she said.

"Watch me open this egg," the second woman said.

Placing the orb in the encircling arms of a nest,

holding it to her chest, for ten thousand breaths..."Patience"she said...."patience"..."patience"

...and the egg opened itself.

Have a wonderful week
