Moments of Ash Wednesday

Feb morning sky
sweeping the kitchen floor
the remnants of living
Ash Wednesday
***
rushing to work
contemplation takes a backseat
smudged forehead
***
scattered in the last autumn leaves
flock of small brown sparrows take wing
Lenten prayers

One thought on “Moments of Ash Wednesday

  1. So very true, I think, how contemplation takes a backseat to the hustle and bustle of the world’s activity. We really need to keep the meaning in this season….as much as we can…the smudge of ashes is a reminder!
