Days Forty

Ashes, ashes
All are we
Flesh and bones
Is our body

Season here
Of days forty
Soul to grow
Spiritually

To our desert
Willingly
Focusing
On acts of three

Spending time
In prayer with Thee
Listening
Contemplatively

Time to turn
Away from me
Fasting from
Temptations be

God of grace
Abundantly
Giving alms
Generously

Knowing what’s
Ahead of me
Cross to bear
And great glory!
