In the Shadow of the Cross

In the Shadow of the Cross

“Blessed is He

who comes in the

Name of the Lord!”

The crowds cheered.

Palm branches waved.

Colorful coats covered

the road,

the donkey’s back.

But Jesus wept

over the city

over the people

over hardened hearts.

A vibrant celebration,

but no one saw

the shadow

of the cross.
