AN ODD AND UNEVEN TIME

February was a dark wilderness. Floods and rain, gales that flung trees to the ground sure as they be Icarus. We tidied up after, our hearts were obsessed by reordering the disorderly. And then the wars began, though no one wanted to call it a war. How dark must it be before it’s war? No one has an answer. February was an odd and uneven time. Where was god during February? His fingerprints are nowhere to be found in this mess.

Inside a month
Is there a god inside you
Fragile as lamb’s fleece

    1. I’ve lost track of my centre, that bit that just hums along so long as I don’t interfere with it. The problem is … the world is interfering with it.

          1. Yum!! I have known of Shrove Tuesday all my life but don’t know when it is or what it’s about. Is it the first Tuesday in March?

            1. Shrove Tuesday is the day before Lent starts, and 47-days before Easter Sunday, so the date changes every year.
