Ash Wednesday Haiku

To church for ashes
Today, signs of earth, dust, signs
We are down to earth.

(May God bless us today
In a down to earth way)
Sam Candler


  1. Sam, consider this haiku left over from the Epiphany season at the Cathedral:

    Uninvited birds,
    Intermittent light and dark...
    Ne'er a dull moment!

    -Mike Martin

  2. Thanks, Mike!
    An excellent haiku, and an accurate portrayal of the last three Sundays at the Cathedral! Kelton and company did get the bird; we cannot determine yet where the short is. But -- ne'er a dull moment!
