what is lent?

A mountain sleeps and rises

braces for storms, celebrates the forest

endures drought, suffers through fires.


Like the mountain

I learn to endure the thought

that life is transient.


I learn a little knowledge

in perception of beauty.


I learn to accept

life’s deep ambiguities.


Season of lent is here.

Time to turn the heart,

with humility, ascend the mountain


not to prove, but to receive

God’s teachings, poured abundantly.

The holy spirit dwells in our heart.
