That is the nature of SPI, being master / slave. To get data from a slave the master must wait for the response.

Where as there are often cases peripherals need only be told and don’t respond. In those case one can blindly send. But then need to ensure that the next send does not stomp on prior sends. So it is simpler just to typically wait until the current is done.
