Day 1 of 40

The year melts away like morning frost;
days consumed like pancakes.
Suddenly its Lent
and thoughts have moved
from presents unwrapped
to the present -
and to the present yet to come.
Cold leftovers from Christmas
like their glitzy paper swaddlings
now history
and the hot passion of Easter
slowly comes into focus,
swathed in shroud.
