Lent Day 11- hope will break through

though the sky is grey,

and the land still waterlogged,

from my window

I see blossom budding,

the flush of pale green leaves unfurling,

the birds have a new energy,

some quite feisty as they jostle for position

claiming territory, and mates,

then from my window I see one tree,

stark against the burgeoning the landscape,

bare branches piercing the sky,


I am that tree,

new life has not graced it yet,

not outwardly,

not noticeably,

but inside,

sap is rising,

life is stirring,

the seasonal transformation is happening,

drawn up though deep roots,

hope will break through,

an apology has been offered,

a hand has been extended,

it is time to let go,

life rises to claim life,

I can do no more….

but wait…

spring is coming…

hope is breaking through…

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...
