Palm Sunday

Hosanna! All praise to God!

I'm glad to be in your presence this day, beautiful God:
to be breathing in the warm spring air
walking, relaxed, through new grass
and knowing that you are in this day
regardless of sunlight or storm
in spite of
and in the midst of
palms and crosses, life and death alike.
Today is your day
to be praised.
Today is your day
to draw us into living
more intentionally
more carefully
more praise-ing-ly
(and God, since you made language,
I trust that you understand made-up words).
Today I am glad to be with you
to be called yours.
Keep my feet on the ground
and my voice full of song,
God of glory.
