The Thirty-Nine Steps


It’s the second day 

of the season of

Lent. 

Thirty-nine more steps

through the wilderness 

journey. 

If you gave up

something big 

something you are really attached to

then this could be

a marathon of want. 

Maybe it could even

feel that the peril 

of the desert-dark flight

could end your 

way of life. 

But it could also be

that if you had thirty-nine days

to be

with love

you would likely

embrace a miracle

and in an eye-blink

you are

there
