Every Vigil is an Equal Watching



Every vigil is an equal watching,
every watcher
is ready,

even when they don't know

what

or who

they wait for.


It is the watcher's task

to wait.
It is God's task,
or the work of

the spirits of the night hours,
or old loves
or love yet known
to provide the object
and reason for it all.


Watch, good friend,
and wait.

Easter belongs

to every one
who enters into waiting.


Else, what's a vigil for?
