see the wind tickle the trees and hear them laugh
watch them jiggle with joy
lay down on your back and glide your hands above the dewy green grass,
caress cold soil between your finger tips
one day you will rest below
but not today
for now, look at those clouds showing off, changing shapes
a bear, a car, a smoking elephant
Watch them as they crash and fall
Have you seen a mountain more majestic?
breathe in all that beauty, but
to bear witness to so many miracles at once
might be overwhelming
who needs a pastor to resurrect a man to believe?
a cell dividing into two and again and again and again and now, here you are
Your self? is that not a miracle?
see that lady walk with her plastic bags
pregnant with groceries,
smile at her, tell her, her headwrap looks beautiful
her load will feel lighter that way
is that not a miracle?
If you open your eyes
