    We stood in a circle
    in the sunshine on the
    patio where we had waved
    palm fronds barely an hour
    before; now we were sharing
    bread and wine, basking
    in the brilliant spring shine,
    our solemn ritual exposed,
    on purpose, made public,
    taken outdoors, alive;
    our ministers in stoles
    and sunglasses.

    The future’s so sacred,
    we gotta wear shades.

      Sounds great. Reminds me of the year we celebrated Palm Sunday in the local shopping centre

      I love this. You ought to consider participating in the Poem A Day challenge at Poetic Asides.
