Ron’s turn this week for his and Colleen’s Writer’s Quote Challenge. He has given us ‘miracle’ to use as our prompt word, and I have found the perfect quote to go with it!
“Just because you can explain it doesn’t mean it’s not still a miracle.”
– Terry Pratchett
The cry of a newborn baby
As he takes his first gulp of air
Despite being born at 28 weeks
He’ll survive with lots of care
The patient who has cancer
Given six months to survive
Yet five years on and still going strong
So happy to be alive
The changing of the seasons
Each one of them delights
With the freezing winter mornings
And the balmy summer nights
The planets in the night sky
Even going to the moon
Things that were once thought impossible
Will be reality soon
Miracles are all around us
From the moment of our birth
We just need to take time to notice
The beauty and wonder of this earth
Truly beautiful sis! These are all miracles ?
Thanks Sis. Yes, there are so many things that are miracles when you think about it 🙂
Wondrous and beautiful things. Life is a miracle itself. I enjoyed reading this 🙂
Thanks, Jacqui. Ye, life is indeed a miracle.
Judy, this poem was just beautiful! I love how your words emphasize that miracles are all around us! ❤
Thanks so much Colleen 🙂
Very true – miracles abound but sometimes we don’t notice.
Indeed, there are so many thing that are miraculous, that we never even think of.
Beautiful and heartfelt poem. It reminds me of my dad. He’s a miracle. He was told he had three months to live––that was 18 years ago!
That is one very special miracle Vashti. x
This is me!

Hello, and thanks for stopping by. I am Judy, in my (very) early fifties and decided that life definitely gets more interesting as it goes on! I am a wife and a mum and have just finished University as a Registered Nurse, after having worked as an Associate Practitioner in the NHS. I am also a poet and the author of my debut book, 'Rhymes of the Times.' I love to laugh, and I love rhyming words too, so I joined the two together, and my book was born. I am currently working on another book in the series also. I am a prolific blogger and enjoy writing funny stories, anecdotes, and anything really that takes my fancy.
