Hope for the day

Matt 24:36–44

Keep watch from your present darkness,
anticipate surprise, prepare to start, taken
back: a new beginning. Keep watch
amidst these heady days, joyous
haze that will dim your view of new
horizons. Keep watch along your barren
way, this wasted landscape as you await
the rushing flood of new life sweeping
away the old. Keep watch without
counting time, for you know
not for what you are preparing: but
prepare, attend, awaken: be looking for
the birth of new hope once again –
keep watch, for God is always coming.
