Lenten Haiku

the world weighs heavy

our brokenness wearies us

and yet God is here


shadows threaten us

darkness presses on all sides

God’s light continues


we hunger and thirst

longing to be satisfied

abundance is here


life comes as a gift

whether we notice or not

it’s time to rejoice


having received

we freely share what we have

God’s abundant life


God’s love shining through

filling our lives and our world

our response is praise


(and for Easter)

new life out of death?

it seems so improbable

surprise! God is here!
