Sensational Haiku Wednesday-Renovation


Spiritual Renovation

A new beginning.
Spirit within awakens
through fasting and prayer.

Sacrifice. Penance.
Redirecting life towards
a holier path.

May hearts be humbled
so that Christ's light can shine through
this season of Lent.

I'm still working on my post for today. I don't really know what to do with it. But YOURS is fabulous! Thank you for reminding me that the most effective renovations are interior, not exterior.

Janet in Toronto said...

Lovely! I took a similar approach on this most holy of days.

Peace be with you.

Jenn@ You know... that blog? said...

Oh right, it's Ash Wednesday! Had to look at my calendar when I saw Janet's comment. Cool interpretation of theme :)

Have a great day!

Lori said...

I like it. Like a look within mixed with a holiday greeting.

You are such an inspiration! I will point people to you when they say in that oh, so judgemental tone that Catholics aren't really Christian. My grandfather was the most devoutly Christian man I have ever known. (stepping off soap box)

Though I'm only tangentially, vaguely spiritual, I enjoy giving things up for Lent. It fortifies the will.

I am just too rule driven! I couldn't fit Lent in 17 syllables, so I went with something else all together! Your haiku are very timely & well done.

Well done, Polly. So touching and inspirational.

It's crucial! For all of us to understand that the most effective renovations aren't the exterior but the interior!
I love this post , Polly!
