  1. Wow.. such a brilliant thought! i love the way you pointed it “ordinary task” many of our minds wouldnt have wandered on crafting a haiku for this.. 🙂

  2. Now this is a fascinating shot!

  3. Palm branches do invoke holiness. But I’d never think of saying “swish of holiness.” But that’s cause I’m not a poet.

  4. perfection…
    mexico is a powerful muse for you!

  5. The lyrical power of “swish” is extraordinary, a magical flourish in this delightful haiku!

  6. Yup, every task is extraordinary!

  7. Yes-I call that celebrating the mundane! I love too, how resourceful that man is in using a palm frond to sweep with. As the saying goes, ‘works for me’!

  8. I love your prayers of the ordinary.

  9. Wonderfully spiritual expression in the ordinary!! If you enjoy what you do, it transcends the ordinary for sure.

  10. Cleanliness is next to Godliness, put in other words. Good one! 🙂

  13. This reminds me of Palm Sunday. Very nice images.
