Advent Reflection: Waiting for God-ot

Is waiting for God
really like
waiting for Godot –
the one who never
comes or is always
yet to come?  Maybe.
The funny thing is
that the Godot
waiters never seem
to mind very much –
the waiting –
but we?  A different
story – we mind very
much as we sky-cry
Where are You?
What would it be like
to wait without minding
the waiting?  Without
the impatience?  The
sky-crying child anger?
Waiting without demand
or expectation beyond
the waiting itself?
Maybe that’s Advent.
