Coming back to the Lord in Lent...
by Peter Menkin

Quiet, listening to the silence
this Lent, aware of the largeness
of God, the short life of man and woman.
We frail creatures, loved as part of creation,

return to the Lord this season.
This is a great thing, and part of the Church
year--refreshing in its way,
but a road that is taken while observingon its route

the winter rain, the bare trees,
other days the light--the daily day offers time.
It is a surrounding

experience, penitence. Ever even so small an offer,
there is the reminder that we have time
to come back. To turn, to turn, to turn.
