bright colors, lined up all in a row. a barrier to the outside world. a safe space to play.
dirty feet. markers. sidewalk chalk. jump ropes.
"ice cream, ice cream, cherry on the top..." will strawberries in a bowl do?
bon iver streams over the air, carried on the subtle breeze. palm leaves wave. delicate white jasmine blossoms, branches wrapped around brick columns, carry the sweet perfume of easter.
tonight we will wash the feet of jesus. prepare for tomorrow.
tomorrow will be dark. "good" friday. for today, the sun still shines.
