First Thursday of Lent

Le ruego, “Colmame, Señor.”
Me responde,
“Viértete todo.”

Como harina de tortillas
vertida del talego grande
en bolsas pequeñitas
se rebosan, y aunque se zarande,
no se lo contienen el mayor parte.


This is day 9 of Labia Munda, a series of forty poems during the forty days of Lent.

Hi, I'm Matthew, a Roman Catholic seminarian studying in the SF Bay Area. Come join me and my friends as we discuss Christian life, faith, liturgy, priestly formation, philosophy, theology, Shakespeare, and a whole lot more. Be, Jesus, our joy!
