Harley King

"May you wait patiently for your success with the belief and confidence that it will come."

— Harley King
American Speaker/Poet
1949 -

Many of us are impatient.  We can't wait.  We are in a hurry.  Yet success has its own timetable.  You can't hurry it.  So develop patience and have faith that when the time is right you will receive your moment in the sun.  Enjoy the moment.  Enjoy the present.  Don't worry about tomorrow.

Here are three of my short poems written in 2011.

What color
are your dreams,

my friend?
Bright blue?

Midnight red?
A thin pink?

I gather my fears in my hands.


I've grown old
with doubt,

a finger of time
between clouds

of darkness.
I open my mouth

and swallow the wind.


I am
the moon,

a faded light,
a distant dream.

Hold me
in your arms

that I may be free.
