Living Lent

makes a
Holy Lent?
Prayer, atoning
for acts done and undone?
Fasting from hasty judgements?
Perhaps we will find the answer
by living the questions, wandering
in the wilderness, with a contrite heart.

Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer. –Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet
