Lent — day twenty-six

Be still enough to see.
 – to let the wind of your wings cease
long enough to let the hiding creatures
peek their heads from earthen shelter,
where they watch and wait for the love
of your warm hand and shining face.
Run your fingers through the air you
breathe. Untangle it, and let it rest
where it falls. Know its simple ways,
its rich embrace. Breathe in quaking doubt
and life – it all goes down the same.
You’ll find sometimes dry earth
will satisfy, and “life itself is grace.”
