Sunday 24th March – Palm Sunday

LUKE 19:28-40
sombre, darkening journey
made more so for many
as the night robs the day little by little
at dawn and dusk.
And so to Palm Sunday:
a joyful, even triumphant entry of peace
into Jerusalem.
But hoist by this mood
we are pressed:
a foreboding,
a growing sense
of suspicion, fear, anger, conspiracy
that culminates
in death.
