lenten journal: saving daylight

tonight we will play
with the clocks,
springing forward,
saving daylight,
acting as though
we could tell time
anything at all

we spent the daylight
we had this afternoon
taking the top
off the Wrangler
and winding our way
through an early
spring afternoon

who needs clocks
on a day like today
or tomorrow ---
as we gather at church
would we could
muster the same
abandon for worship

laying aside our ticks
and tasks, and bask
in the breeze and shine
of the Spirit who springs
our hearts forward and
has no idea that worship
lasts only an hour
