Lent 1

Something being worked on for Sunday evening


the world takes on a different hue
when everything is weighted with such a story
as the one we find buried within us
ready to bud in this season

the brighter colours betray the events
of the man of light and his journey
towards the darkness, just as the day
makes ground on the weaker night

words unfold with new meaning now
tinged with purple and passion as they are
but it is the silence that lies between the words
that holds the deeper story of love

who has never been this way before
trusting she is greater, longer, deeper
more light-filled than all the darkness.
the man of love seems so fragile

to face the cosmos-weight of all the moments
where love has failed to make ground on the dark
filled with the violence and hurt of too many individuals
who know too little about hope

yet here we are, on the precipice of salvation
where this choice is the whole future
and the darkness either wins
with the silence of undisturbed crowds

or the tomb of all our hopes shatters
and love lives once more
in the story of love resurrected
in every word uttered in belief
