looking toward palms

The triumph of the palms
Shouting Hosannas
Waving branches
“Make way, Make way!”
The Passover celebration
Washing their feet
(An intimate act)
Serving the Feast
(“My body, my blood”)
Speaking confusing words
That led out into
The dark night
Betrayal
Defeat
Denial
Desolation
Tears
And, finally, crucifixion
The crux of the whole world
The turning
The moment
The darkness
Make way, Make way…
