Sunrise

2015 sunrise photo

Forty days
in the 
wilderness
gives 
rise 

to the pull
of fear and hungers;
to misdirected power;
to love and
passion sent
in a lesser
direction.

This Lent
I want to breathe
the pungent
sage-scent
of desert;
to feel earth-heat
and

to let the wind
and sand sear
this into my 
heart and mind:
I am Beloved
of God.

Let the power
of that Love
pour like light
through 
my pores

And radiate
Life and
Compassion
like
a fiery, hope-infused
sunrise.
