Oh Lent!!!

Oh Lent!
Springing my dirty feet
As I laid my belly
At the side of the river

With sponge
Glittering as silver chains
She scrub my little feet
Deep in the face
of the streams
Set in the eyes
Of the mid-day sun

What a feeling
Of joy and hope
To be rattle by the
Torch of fire in the
Miner’s flame

The heart kindle
In white of snow
By the close side
At the river of life

About Michael Ogundele

A writer, ardent reader and lover of nature. fell in love with writing five years back and I've been engraved in her arms ever since. I share my little way of writing poetry and reflections based on Catholic faith and Spirituality on this space. I hope you enjoy reading as we ride the same chariot to the leafy greens. Do follow me and together, let us jump into the ocean of my ink.
