Holy Thursday

“For I eat ashes like bread,
   and mingle tears with my
         drink,”  Psalm 102:9

gathering up the ashes
from the bonfire where
we tossed mercy, hope, peace,
   you shape them into
   a loaf of love;
as your tears seep
into the cup in your hand,
   you transform them
   into the bitter wine
   of grace
