A Poem for Lent


Manna, day by day
was not enough to cease
their murmuring
the Israelites dissent against
apparent abandonment

Driven out, a test, a trial
Jesus endured praying
hungry, weak, still
he confounded the tempter
until the arrival of angels

Following fire
certain of path and plan
I did not see the
sand erasing my tracks

Which is worse?
being lost
being found
