Poem - It's Easy to Miss a Miracle

Maine - 2012

It’s Easy to Miss a Miracle

It’s easy to miss
a miracle,

like a moment
of unbidden grace
it arrives unannounced,

dropping into your life
like soft, spring rain,
brushing your cheek with
a tender kiss,

not asking to be
the star,

just a miracle so quiet
you might miss
it altogether
save for the subtle shift
in the air suddenly imbued
with a taste so sublime
you might think
 it was spiced
with nectar from the heavens,

that taste, that moment
so rare,
is a miracle just for you.

  1. The perfect combination of this beautiful poetry and photo pull us into the miracles easily seen by a child (or with own childlike viewing, if we're fortunate).

  2. Perfectly said. It's the childlike viewing that helps us see the miracles in front of us. Having a child by our side makes them even easier to see and feel.
