• lenten journal: epiphany

    I would love to tell you I had
    an epiphany in the middle of lent:
    an earth-shattering, horizon-bending,
    blaze of understanding and insight
    that changed everything for me.

    My day, however, spelled out
    in much smaller steps, turns of
    phrase, incremental graces: a call
    from a friend, homemade marinara,
    sunshine on my lunch hour.

    My heart feels like the tail
    of the lion outside the library,
    worn smooth by hands on humanity:
    even statues can come to life
    when love shows up everyday.

    Peace
    Milton

      I think what is wonderful is that epiphanies happen all the time when we are open to them. Today I saw a bank of flower petals like snow by the side of the road. And homemade marinara sauce is ALWAYS a blessing. Thanks.
