piercing the fabric
of worldly woe angelic strains -
His father's will done

Hosanna-filled/ blessed ears of a donkey/ once upon a time
Sunday savvy/ a cloak-lined street/ for the Messiah
a king/annointed appointed/ lowly rides he
into disbelief/ a mirage shimmers to cloud/ the mind sight
hearing him/ tremors to shake the earth/ his prayer from the cross

--gillena cox


Hosanna was the shout of praise or adoration made in recognition of the Messiahship of Jesus on his triumphal entry into Jerusalem

HAPPY PALM SUNDAY

our loss of an elder statesman

flowering Immortelle, in the mountains

REMINISCE: RETREAT

those were Sundays yeah!
early in the mornings
we boarded the bus

going on retreat
our singing voices hushed
in then dawn breezes

windows opened door closed
settled to our seatings
someone gestures wait

bags shifted around
to make all comfortable
morning clouds clumping

egrets returning
white in the light of morning
burst of Hail Mary's

singing voices urged
of rejoice an addendum
breakfast appetite

His green of forests
and His blue of oceans filled
the retreat knapsacks

Its the Sunday of the week before Holy Week; one of the readings at church this morning, told about Lazarus being raised from the dead, after Jesus had raised his eyes up to his father in heaven, and then commanded Lazarus to physical life once more. Wow! how awesome is He!!!

Oh, and there is a large banner up at church displaying our choir's concert to be held on 25,26,&27 April at Fatima College Hall; Sunday Smiles
