For Palm Sunday

Physically separated from my faith community, I’ve been pondering a symbolic action. This came out:   

May we call to mind

the blessings we have received

from this branch:

source of oxygen

food and home for other links

in God’s startling web of creation.

The water we sprinkle

life-giving to all it touches.

Water and branch combined

are symbols of the majesty

of which we are a humble part.

Water and branch remind us

in all their subtle complexity

that we are in God’s reign.
