13-Miracles

Fueled

Fueled
by a million
man-made
wings of fire
the rocket tore a tunnel
through the sky
and everybody cheered.
Fueled
only by a thought from God
the seedling
urged its way
through thickness of black
and as it pierced
the heavy ceiling of the soil
and launched itself
up into outer space
no
one even
clapped.

-Marcie Hans

When you think about it,
the act of a seedling breaking through its outer shell,
pushing itself up against gravity, and
bursting through the soil
is one of life’s many miracles.

The way our hearts continuing to beat
without ceasing
until they do cease
is one of life’s many miracles.

The way our lungs breathe in and out
without our having to pay attention
is one of life’s miracles.

What are the miracles you are not seeing? What are you taking for granted in your life?
