Lent



+

The Bated Breath
Between
Ashes
and
Beauty,

The Road
From
Razed
to Resurrection...

An exquisite Stillness belies
The Movement
Beneath the surface,
Behind the Scenes,

The Readying for Birth

Submerged, Momentarily,
In this baptismal
'In-Between',

I feel myself,
not free-floating,
but tenderly Held,
Embraced in His Arms,
Every muscle therein tensed
Tremulous,
Ready to Lift me

From Lent,

To Life

+

"I Am the Resurrection and the Life."
-John 11:25
