Advent poem - written Nov 2009

Sentinel stands …

Expectant father ...
Hospice nurse …

Awaiting … Awaiting …
Life or death bearing moment
That is yet to come

Watching … Watching …
Over family, ward or city

Scanning farther horizons

Seeing … Seeing …
Beyond the parapets
That limit others' vision

Discerning … Discerning …
The signs of hope or fear

Untroubled, unshaken
By familiar sounds and sights

Guarding … Guarding …
The Peace …
Awaiting Shalom
