Pancakes

#ShroveTuesday #Pancakes #Food #Acrostic #Lent #Christian

Stack of Pancakes, traditionally served up on Shrove Tuesday, the day before Ash wednesday, the start of the Christian Lenten season of Abstinence and Fasting before Easter

Perhaps, it’s

Apt, that a

Number of these batter-based treats are

Created on Shrove Tuesday, For on the day after

Adults of a certain faith, may ask their

Kids to forgo the

Enjoyment of their favourite chocolate bars till the evening of

Saturday before Easter sunday, when the Easter bunny has hopped by

Stained Glass Window

Poem borrowed from my page at Allpoetry.com

A tale a bit crafty, a bit religious, but all by me

Artwork created at Craft Sessions at Brain & Spinal Injury Charity in Salford.

As the Sun comes up,

its light shines through

the panels of coloured glass

angling the now coloured light

painting a picture,

of scenes on a floor

And as the sun shines,

through that brightly coloured window

reds cast with yellows

and greens cast with blues

as molten lead holds on tightly,

keeping the picture alive

Colour of the crown

Crown.jpg

#Coloryourworld #cyw #royalpurple

Perched on her majesty’s head

Under the frame of silver and jewel

Royal colour emits from the crown

Perhaps – it denotes her status – as head of her church

Like priests and bishops wear the colour in spring at mass in parishes up and down

England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales

Is anything sacred ?

Sacred

They’re tearing down temples

for a flash B & B

The places of worship,

they think they are twee.

 

They’re moving the pulpits

to community halls

whilst taking a digger

to break down brick walls

 

In name they call – “Progress”

Its the communities loss

for the one who wont replace it –

is the man they call “Boss”

 

But the leader of worship –

you see – he’s no fool

for the church comes attached

with its very own school

 

So one way or another

the sacred worship will survive

as the church all meets in the school

where together – they thrive.
