My Emmaus Road

Standing on my driveway
in a torrential downpour
frowning at the flat…
…he came along
wearing a bright yellow raincoat
with bold reflecting lines of silver…
…as he kneeled to change the tire
sparkling drops of rain
bounced their way down his back
to the ground…
…then a wink, a smile,
a joke about the cuteness of the donut
then my gratitude in a hug…
…Go with God…
…his face softened in grace…

…four days later I finally see it,
the face of Jesus
reflected by a bright yellow raincoat…
