My Lenten Reflection

Just as the flower bulb
drinks slowly in
the nourishment
from the fertile soil,
from the melting snow,

So does my soul
drink slowly in
the nourishment
from the Word of God,
from the Body and the Blood,

To flower,
to beautify,
to please,
to nourish
all that surrounds it.

Crocus in bloom
