Audrey writes poetry to fulfill a need and release confined feelings. She won her first poetry contest at age 7. We all have a poem to write

Nature's living things are inherently patient.

Allow Time for Things to Unfold

Patience, the necessary ingredient to complete all tasks

The trees grow as they want to

Each creature lives by its cycles

Impatience is alien to nature


Patience matters in all of life

The birth of a baby

The growth of the harvest

The healing of the heart


Caring slowly

The art of patience

The greatest power manifesting love

We are the master of our own destiny


Cultivate patience for yourself

Only time brings growth

Acceptance and faith

The keys to patience


The moon and the sun

Awaits its time to shine

Patiently waiting its turn

Ministering light to all


Patience, the brother of wisdom

Nature, time and patience

Three great physicians

Allow time for things to unfold.

Impatience is a Quality That's not Only Alien to Nature, but Life-Threatening

In your life, for anything worthwhile to be accomplished, you need to be patient.

      A great reminder to slow down, not only because of the form of the piece, which encourages you to savor every word, but because of the sentiment.

      Dear Patricia

      Patience is a difficult thing to cultivate. But when we learn patience, as you have pointed out, life brings us more happiness. You have achieved a magnificent destination.

      Blessings to you and your family.

      What beautiful comments. "Running with patience" means "calm but focused". This is a powerful message and reminder. When I pray (especially when I ask for a specific blessing) I add "Thy will be done." Thank you my friend for reading my poem.

      "Patience, the brother of wisdom...Allow time for things to unfold." Indeed.

      Just today a friend and I were talking of Hebrews 12:1, "Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us..." Running with patience seems conflicting until we understand that its context is calm but focused endurance. We were considering how that concept applies to prayer.

      Prayer is God's way, and patience is something He often calls us to as we pray.

      So beautifully shared in this poem Audrey. It took me many years to learn to be truly patient. I always wanted to second guess the future and hurry every thing along. But since I am now able to give that up my life is much happier.

      Thank you for your kind comment. It's great to see you. Have a lovely day.

      I'm glad you like the line "Patience, the brother of wisdom". As I look back on the endless times I've struggled with patience I always think about what I've learned from the experience. There's always a lesson.

      Thank you my friend for being here. Blessings.

      Hi Peggy

      I honor you in many ways including being a nurse. I can't imagine a service that requires more patience. I owe much to the nurses that have cared for me in my life. Thank you dear Peggy.

      Audrey, Wonderful illustrations for the need of patience:

      "The birth of a baby - The growth of the harvest - The healing of the heart"

      This statement caused me pause to ponder the truth of it, "Patience, the brother of wisdom"

      I loved this!

      Thank you Dora for confirming the value of patience.

      Hi Mary

      So nice to see you again. You are obviously destined for inner peace and supreme joy. These attributes come to us through awareness of our own weaknesses and the determination to work on them in spite of everything.

      This action spells "humility" and you've got it my friend!

      Dear Audrey, thanks for reminding us of the importance, and actually necessity, of developing our ability to be patient. There must be a reason why so many people are born with a tendency to be rather impatient than patient. I guess it is once again a matter of being moderate and able to go with Nature's flow.

      You are so right Audrey! Patience is so important for all of us and it must be cultivated consciously . One who masters this , can never feel deprived or depressed.

      What a beautiful way to define Patience with this wonderful poem!

      Thanks for sharing!
