The Poetry of Lent

Let's not be so morose about our 40-day journey

The poetry of Lent tends to be
dark
sparse
barren.

Still, it can be poetry of
love
life
promise.

We cannot feign
suffering
sacrifice
denial.

So, let us
trek
journey
adventure
toward the Cross.

Rather than toiling
backwardly
haltingly
morosely,

Let us stride
purposefully
courageously
passionately
where Jesus leads.
