Wednesday Riff: Waiting Days

These waiting days,

In a time of speed,

In a time of haste.

Songs download in a single click,

Parcels get delivered the same day,

Our meals microwaved in seconds,

But lives change slowly,

History will not be hurried.

These waiting days,

In a time of speed,

In a time of haste.

Still takes nine months,

Still 24 doors on the calendar,

Still time to countdown to that Silent Night,

Lives change slowly,

History will not be hurried.

These waiting days,

In a time of speed,

In a time of haste.

We stand at the Advent crossroads

Watch the sky, smell the flowers,

In the gap of the now and the not yet,

Good things promised, so they say,

Small precious things,

To the waiting people.

If you've appreciated this, why not...
