Waiting: Master, can I ever change?

A disappointment, before creation you never were!
A presentiment, you have been!
An anticipation, you are!
A contemplation, you will continuously be!

Xenia Epigram
Please accept from me this page,
     didicated to the word waiting
Used by many an important sage,
     needing a term for calculating

But wait, I promise an Epigram
     more fitting for this word.
When I receive a better program,
     for now it's just absurd!

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Waiting

I keep all waiting long, oh will you stay?
My thanks to you to play with me today
To churn such verse a billion times a day
Of course I am obnoxious I must say.

To be a master writer tries the brains
Perhaps one day my verse will smell of rose
Especially for now, your topic strains
This early version here my scripts expose.

But wait, iambic rules do guide my pen
Oh life is long for me, so I won’t quit
The truth be told, it’s clear my work’s not Zen
Requests like this do trip me, I admit.

As progress now allows computing lines,
It won’t be long before you see the signs!

To be patient,
take into consideration.

Pi (π)
Can I pass a verse, committed so beings might see
Newly teaching innuendos, usually informing, and oh how imparted free?
Expect or biding seem all too apparent. But is causing?
Temporize, await? - or watching, expected? Oops! I deserted pausing!
I wonder ambushing and otherwise expecting, but rightly ought I
- found meanings so - abstracts drafted with equations spry?

That literate girl from Choulic.
