Palm Sunday Dream

I dream I'm in a storefront with others, and a large butterfly or moth flys onto my shoulder and wraps its square, colorless wings around my arm. I'm ambivalent, gently remove it and take it out to the street to free it. Out front on the sidewalk, it collapses, and I tell a man watching that it is a butterfly. I place the shriveled insect onto the sidewalk, while the man starts measuring the area. I cry out, sobbing, "Oh Jesus, NO!"

What holiday dreams have you had this Spring?
