mud, not ash…

today I walked,

and mud replaced the ashes

I had sought,

mud and hills

and an unknown path

(to me),

footsteps placed

one before the other,

carefully picking the path

through boggy ground,

and up a slippery incline,

ascending and descending,

connected to

earth and sky,

I breathe the air,

and feel the beat of my heart,

life is here,

and this mud

on my boots,

on my trouser legs,

is the ash to my forehead,

I have taken a less trodden path,

to earth, to ash

I will return,

this mud

will suffice today…


About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and 2 lovely grandsons). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off! I love walking, swimming and photography, I dabble with paint and poetry...
