Yellow Lent


Yellow Lent 1
Originally uploaded by paynehollow
This Lenten season, we are celebrating in colors at Jeff Street. Each week, we'll worship in living color and this week's was yellow. Sue offered a wonderful thoughtful moment of how she has found God in the smell of lemons, in the blooming of yellow flowers in a golden spring.

Along those lines, I offer this little poem...


GoldFinch

I've seen him twice now,
this American Goldfinch.
Not a rare bird, perhaps,
But certainly near extinction in this
urban jungle yard of mine.
His bright yellow feathers warm me
with a hope that my garden,
my yard,
my city
can be reclaimed
and that nature can once again be
welcome here.
