Maundy Thursday





On this day four events are commemorated: the washing of the disciples' feet by Jesus Christ, the institution of the Eucharist at the Last Supper, the agony of Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane, and the betrayal of Christ by Judas Iscariot.

A weariness pours over me when I read this. I am thinking of the strength it took for Jesus to press on.





Oh Passover wine
And tremendous bread of God
Here we suckle rocks

jagged moonlight watch
Man of Sorrows cloaked in prayer
crimson dropplets fall

Unpeeling an orange
Into moon-slivered phases.
An invocation.

Prevail.

exhale magnetic
north, compass rose break forth in
bloom, pluck off the map

following no one
lead by someone in the depths
where will thy will end

My neice Sophie's first attempt at a haiku. Piggy Woman's offspring...

The players--Molly is a basset hound and Riley is a daschund. Mom is mom.

Molly whines in frustration
Mom speaks poetry in a fashion way
Riley looks concerned with his past

A small revision:

John whines in frustration
Judas speaks poetry in a fashion way
Peter looks concerned with his past

Maundy Thursday.
