As we begin our journey through Lent towards Easter. I thought I would do something a little bit different. So, I am going to open my heart and share a Lenten poem.
The season has come;
I lay in bed thinking with darkness around me.
What am I going to do this year?
I lay in bed thinking with darkness around me;
I must do something this year.
The season is here.
It is Ash Wednesday; I will figure something out.
I sit in the pew; I hear the words of the Prophet.
I listen to the crushing silence that night.
I know now! I will be a pilgrim.
I will go on pilgrimage.
Not to the Holy City of Jerusalem
Not to Rome.
I will visit the friend I have negated
I will visit my soul.
I will journey the dark downward path to my soul
For God’s sake as well as my own.
