Lent Day 13 (b) noticing

On my walk today

I tried to take the time to notice things,

blue skies and bird song,

blackbirds, robins, blue-tits,

a couple of young squirrels

unearthing their winter store…

the sound of the river,

the wind in the bramches,

but most of all I noticed the flowers,

delicate blossoms holding firmly to branches,

or hugging the ground,

poking triumphantly through

autumns fallen leaves,

vibrant yellow calling out,


delicate white and pink,

could have been so easily trampled,

I am glad I noticed them instead….

consider the lilies,

the Spirit whispered,

you are noticed too,

remember you are not alone!


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...
