Saturday Good Reads


It’s Holy Week, and the death and resurrection of Christ is much on the minds of the online community. David Rupert thinks about taking a nap – the Garden of Gethsemane. Kathy Richards considers the cross – upside down. Anita Mathias reflects on how the failures of Friday are made beautiful. Amy Leigh Cutler learns holy. And more.

Love the cello video. Thanks Glynn!

Megan Willome said...

Thank you, Glynn. I never expected anyone but me to appreciate this poem. But it's about more than what actually happened that morning at the pool.

Megan Willome said...

Oh, and that cello video was delightful!

Glynn!

In a former life, I played Happy Together more times than the Turtles ever did. It is the happiest song ever written, in any genre. No one doesn't like it.

Thank you for including "Mud Angels", Glynn. Your own Holy Week poems deserve a shout-out.

Wishing you the blessings and promise of Easter.
