Waiting, watching, reading and praying

Waiting
      Waiting
             Waiting
Trying to be patient

Watching
        Watching
                Watching
The labouring's ongoing

Reading
        Reading
                Reading
Verses so well known

Praying
       Praying
              Praying
For this year's revelation

Waiting
        Watching
                Reading
And Praying altogether

This poem was written after tonight's advent service of reflection and is linked up to poetry pantry #127 at poets united where the photo of a candle was provided.  Happy advent.

I remember advent like that -- lots of waiting. Oh yeah, and playing with the candles.

Watching, waiting, and praying all definitely have a place in the advent season. A good reminder!

A timely poem.......you reminded me of advent when I was young.

Watching, listening, observing, waiting... we each would benefit from more of this advent-related behavior!

It's the advent of a saw blade!
