Lenten Prayers Posted on February 10, 2016 by The Course of Our Seasons 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 Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...
each of them has a character, they work nicely together
Thank you Lucy – K
Beautiful haikus, the first one especially is striking
thank you – that is high praise indeed – K
beautiful poem…took my breath away..soft and feels like floating on the wings of a prayer..
what a lovely thing to say – thanks very much K
The sparrows becoming prayers – lovely. Three beautiful images, all bringing aspects of life and the season of Lent together.
Just so delicate, peaceful and contemplative like a prayer.
“contemplation takes a backseat” Indeed. And that’s why we need Lent. A reminder to slow down and remove faith obstacles.
beautiful – i love the first one especially
“the remnants of living –
From dust to dust, and then life goes on. Nicely!
I think you captured the simple poetic life here. nicely done.
Reading this, I felt beautifully set adrift, like the brown sparrows and leaves on the hollow-singing spring wind. I loved this poem– a hymn of quiet regret.
I like the smudged forehead and contemplation taking a backseat…sadly its what is happening during the Lenten season ~
Happy day to you ~
nice…i love the birds in that last as prayers taking wing…and actually it is the first that grabbed me….the sweeping up…finding the eternal in the mundane….wrote on grace’s about a book by brother lawrence…where he finds god in washing the dishes…
Lovely images for a Wednesday morning Kathleen. Thanks for this.
You are so welcome, Robert – K
