day 176

The LORD tears down the
         house of the proud,
   but maintains the widow's
         boundaries.  Proverbs 15:25

early each morning,
      you drive down
      the street, stopping
   and tossing the scraps
   from our over-built lives
      in the back of
      your rusty pickup,
taking them with you
as you join the Carpenter
   in rebuilding the hope
   of the forgotten.
