washing his clay – v2

Christ’s answer to his cousin
to John in the Jordan
what must be done
being done
in this moment
at the Jordan
washing his clay
Christ’s humanity
into the water
to be baptized
with all of us
Christ’s mission beginning
fulfilling God’s purpose
entering the water
dying to self
rising cleansed
the dust of creation
departing to serve
to raise us to life
