A Miracle Upon my Hand

A Miracle Upon My Hand
A Miracle Upon My Hand

What miracle upon my hand,
a flighted seed in search of home,
the promise of a precious life,
dressed in carriage of destined flight,
and how small its form,
how beautiful its wings,
to soar and by wind
find everything it needs to survive.

I reach out and watch it take flight,
tossed and turned in warm days light,
and far it soars to a distant land,
where nurture it will find,
and grow strong and understand it purpose,
as from shadows it will rise to sunlight’s dawn,
until it too shall spawn its flighted seeds,
to soar into the vast forever.

What miracles nature holds,
no pride or sentiment told,
just the being of life unfurled,
in myriad forms a billion yield,
a gift of perfect life abounds to our delight,
should we witness its every mold,
its every cradle of birth,
blessed upon this earth, as we in turn abide.

    Such miraculous events in a life so small and bonding with the wind to find a home. I love the miracles of nature that teach us so much about life. To let the mind wander along with one of nature’s creations is a beautiful experience. And this is a beautiful verse, Tony. I often take time out to find peace by watching little things like seeds and become aware of how great their life really is. Lovely work, Tony.

    Seed of life in so many forms we see daily. Out of respect we are keepers of their journey, not to disturb them in their flight and growth for life is a precious jewel given to earth to reproduce and expand. I love to see the miracles as they happen, mother nature on it’s beautiful course of enlightenment. You captured it so well with this rendition of a miracle in your hand. Cheers.
