Lenten Haiku

the world weighs heavy
our brokenness wearies us
and yet God is here

we hunger and thirst
longing to be satisfied
abundance is here

having received
we freely share what we have
God’s abundant life

shadows threaten us
darkness presses on all sides
God’s light continues

life comes as a gift
whether we notice or not
it’s time to rejoice

God's love shining through
filling our lives and our world
our response is praise

- Easter -new life out of death?
it seems so improbable
surprise! God is here!
