Holy Wednesday

Today is Wednesday.
Holy Wednesday.
The ultimate hump day of the ultimate hump week.
Nothing much is happening today, but everything is about to happen.
And the tension of doing nothing when so much needs done is almost too much to bear.

We have a room to prepare and a meal.
We have promises to make. Promises to break.
We have prayers to pray and naps to take.
We have swords to draw. Swords to sheathe.
Tears to shed. Places to hide.
Despair in which we must wallow.
We have words to hear in wonder. Words to repeat with holy hope.

But not today.
Today is Wednesday.
Holy Wednesday.
Nothing much is happening.
Yet.

Paper and chalk. Joanna Harader, 2012.
