November Poetry Blog: Advent

As we come into this final stretch of the year, I invite you to breathe for a moment, and to take some time to reflect on this season of Advent. As we watch, wait, and wake into the remaking of Creation, I offer four short poems that correspond to each week of this liturgical season. May they be an opportunity to rest in God’s presence as we anticipate Jesus’ birth.

advent vignettes (part ii)

Gabi Cadenhead

ii. waiting

emptiness becomes a practice,

fragments of story passed

between our hollow mouths,

ancient yearning recycled
