    holy week is slipping by
    (so are a lot of things)

    and I wonder how it felt
    that first time around

    looking for donkeys
    and then washing coats

    setting up the upper room
    holy errands, yes, but

    still things to get done . . .
    by the time they finally

    sat down for dinner
    I wonder how much time

    they spent talking shop
    before Jesus took the bread

    and broke things wide open
    —or perhaps it’s just what

    I hope will happen to me
    between now and Sunday



    Blogging since December 2005

      Never more for me than Holy Week, 2018. Thank you, Milton, for giving voice to my hopeful yearning.
