Our Cry

Our Cry
A reflection on Palm Sunday

Rebellion
in the Garden
was our cardinal sorrow;
lament ever since
has looped on repeat.

East of Eden,
baleful seductions
divert our longings
toward culverts
rife with deceit.

We cannot make
our way back.

This day
our “Hosanna!”
erupts
from the ache
of pandemic.

Yet,
our true
and befitting
cry
remains—

“Blessed is He!”

One thought on “Our Cry

  1. Thank you for this beautiful reminder Chris. Regardless of present circumstances we shall sing “Hosanna!!! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the lord!”
    -God bless.
