“The Right Time” Poem of the Day (2022)

“The Right Time”

By Ashley O’Hare

The finest car

won’t get me very far

when there is an ocean

guarding my wildest dreams.

I wish I had

thought ahead

and taken those swimming lessons

more seriously.

The current may be strong;

The undertow may snag me,

but at least I would

have a fighting chance.

It’s the waiting

that does the killing.

Are my dreams

my natural calling?

Will I be in the right place

at the right time

to answer the phone?
