Mardi Gras


Clowns and carnivals
Pancakes and King cakes
Purple, green and gold
Tastes and colours
that speak of revelry
the storm before the calm
For suddenly
the cacophony is hushed
and Epiphany moves on to Lent
and we wait.
We wait quietly
for an emergence
from the wilderness
whiling away the hours
in penitence
learning the language
of silence
anticipation 
and revelation
and in the waiting
discovering life
in all its fulness.

"The storm before the calm"

I like that, Liz. Your blog is a peaceful place I have missed.
