Palm Sunday

Highest Hosanna
Celebration of our king
On donkey riding

On donkey riding
Palm fronds laid on the ground
Cheering all around

Cheering all around
Expectations running high
They don't know he'll die

Xxxxx

This haiku is linked up at one single impression as a moment in time; at real toads as a roar from my heart; at haiku heights as an example of the optimal fortitude; and Sunday scribblings as an example of religious energy.

I love your description of this poem as a roar from your heart! That is awesome. I love the way you altered the position of the lines as the poem progresses. Yes, very celebratory energy. The reader can feel it.

So good, Emma. Those who didn't know he'd die now have a chance to make it the most profound death ever in their lives.

Hosannah!
The last stanza stopped me in my mental tracks. Indeed, I knew this to be true at this stage of the story; but knowing the end, I forget the power of that truth and the degree of despair it must have spawned.

Old Grizz was particularly satistied the you honored the donkey...the most noble animal of all...he and he alone carried the Virgin Mother and the Son of God to his place of birth...

Very well written.I forget the fortitude it takes to know ones fate and move forward to greet it this way.

I like the repititon of lines and the use of three lines and stanzas... great symbolism there.
