Simple Gifts

Simple Gifts (the song) runs through my head today.  I am not at church, being on another driving hiatus.  I will go to church tonight for the Ash Wednesday liturgy to mark the beginning of Lent. Already I feel the changes, the turning and returning, the bowing and bending unlike anything I remember from before.  I think my Lenten journey has been marked out for me.  All that matters is placing one foot in front of the other.  A simple dance.  A simple gift.

I am home bowing and bending
I watch the way life
Has turned
And turned again.
Tonight I will be reminded
I am dust,
To dust I will return.
This is the gift
For today.
A simple gift.
It is one gift
Of oh so many.
