More powerful

           “One who is more powerful than I is coming…”
                           —Matthew 3.11

I despaired of cleaning off the driveway
of the mud and sand and gravel from the project.
But in the night a strong storm, and in the morning,
a pristine driveway, washed clean.

How often I think the world and I
are subject to our powers alone,
when there is a greater power at work,
gathering even now beyond the horizon.

Love knows what it’s doing.
It has happened before that things have happened
that had never happened before.
Even in this oil-stained world
a voice draws breath to say “Let there be light.”
