Saving Grace, Delivered from the Chaos

By 

Christopher Livingston

Afforded grace

              In dire straits.

An ordinary miracle,

Clear to see.

The path to benevolence

In retrospect

Contingent

On so many Events

Occuring

                 At

                     Exactly

                                  the

                                        Right

Time.

God

Reaching down from Heaven and moving the Earth,

Arranging events,

Would make such a marvel of improbability

Less

extraordinary.

People moving apart

Losing,

Finding,

More,

Would be cheapened by the divine intervention of a God

Who's will can do anything

A perfect,

ordinary

miracle.

A flipped coin,

Landing on its edge.

No one doubts

It can happen.

But few see it.

Magic.

Plain to see,

Without a magician.

Everything.

Falling.

Perfectly. As it should.
