“Holding Pattern”

The final destination’s in sight   
            twinkling lights welcome   
            offer guidance and hope   
Suddenly turbulence     
            rolls over us   
            wind shear threatens our course   

Circle around, around, around   

Running low on fuel   
            ready to crash   
            ready  to burn   
Stuck in a holding pattern   
            waiting for answers   
            waiting for options   

Finally diverted to another port   
            an unexpected paradise  
            with exceptional surprises
