There is a hush in waiting
anticipation as balls drop
planes arrive, race begins
a space of uncertainty
speechless hope, stilled
markets close, open trade
a crowd of decisions flow
congregate, hold in a flash
fears allayed, tears held
joy or pain instant weighed
to alleviate for a moment
vagueness, futureís haze
to burst in emotionís gasp
breaking the still lull at last.
