More for Easter

a spot of holy water
on my silk tie
* * *
I feel a twinge
in my genuflection
* * *
Easter Mass
I run into a friend
I thought was dead
* * *
"Come Holy Ghost"
as the church doors open
leaves in the wind*
*"Come Holy Ghost" is a traditional Catholic hymn, often sung at the end of Mass, as the doors are opening. This is not specifically an Easter ku, but I wrote it this morning, along with the others, and I hope it suggests spring.

I love the last one, as I think of the Holy Spirit as a whispering wind or breeze.

Note to Bill from Carol:

Love your Easter haiku.
While you were at mass in New York, I was singing masses in Chicago, resulting in the following humble thought:

Stations of the cross,

Easter vigil, Easter mass,

Singers getting hoarse

Thank you, Carol. I hope your voice has recovered. I think "There Will Be Animals in Heaven," which I've just read at you blog, is a wonderful poem.
