From Morning to Night
by Becky Gonzalez
Hosanna-filled shouts from the crowd start the day,
“O Lord, save us.”
The same crowds that witnessed the dead being raised.
Signs and wonders,
palm branches and a donkey colt.
and glimpses of glory.
Then prediction of a crucifixion.
“The time has come.”
The storm-tossed soul of a savior on mission,
a savior with oil-anointed toes from the night before.
From glory to glory,
and darkness to light.
Speaking fragrant words of eternal life.
And speaking of fragrant, one final thought to ponder:
Was the scent of perfume from the night before
still in the air at the end of the day
as Jesus prepared to wash his disciples’ feet?
Love’s lingering aroma.
From darkness to light,
and morning to night.
