Lent in the dark
rain rattling windows,
staccato punctuation accompanies meditation.
Turning, reflecting, searching:
my stumbling speech:
products of my heart –
unnaturally mixed fruit
March 6, 2014
During Lent, I will write forty words a day.
A friend had challenged me to “write redemptively”, and I sort of knew what that meant a few weeks ago, and I want to write things that are an improvement over a blank page. I think that I can manage to come up with forty words that are not drivel – besides I like to write, it’s just that I don’t write much.
So, this year I’m giving up the empty space – the vacuum of words that were not written.
Apparently that was 90 words – no I’m not being legalistic and counting that as 2.25 days’ worth!
