Miracle ~
 if you want to explain a miracle to your child, plant a seed.
This miracle is a volunteer.
A seed scattered by the wind
Yesterday I found another volunteer
Truth be told
Many volunteers
Tall snapdragon was a surprise
Sunflowers find their way everywhere
Bird droppings
In the spring, it was a daffodil in the woods
A bulb taken by an underground critter
Sometimes I find them with holes
chewed in the bulbs
tossed aside
Actually, each plant is like a miracle
like us first a cell
then nine months or so later
a person
When we take the time to wonder
Life is filled with miracles.
