Advent I 2015

Advent I, 2015

This Waiting Time


Now is not

a passive time. Indeed,

the world can not bear

any more indifference.


I wish to wait with a passion

akin to the vigilant stars

who allow the day her spectacle

until the night has bloomed:


Unafraid and

full ablaze,

visible briefly but oh,

ever intensely.
