Lent Week 2


Puddles full of peaks,
Towers, droplets, sprays: rain makes
Water dance with joy.

Seville: the Orange Harvest
Imagine a square
Full of trees, full of oranges
Like children's pictures.
Branches are shaken and down
Tumble the oranges thudding 
On the sandy earth creating a rain
Of orange, and an aroma of jam.
But there was no marmalade for breakfast.

Birdsong in the darkness,
A cake on the doorstep,
An unexpected smile.
But God's love exceeds all.
