For You Who Don’t Believe in Miracles

When lightning flashes tear the sky apart
The energy they thus release converts
The nitrogen of air into a form
That all earth’s green growth can use, fixed in dirt.
When baby goats are born, their bony hooves
Are covered with a pliable, soft coat
That soon wears off as they begin to run,
But has by then protected mother goat.
Each fruit of a tomato planted now
Will bear within its warm heart many dozens
Of seeds to throw into the next year’s soil,
Thus filling next year’s garden with its cousins.
If we refuse the miracles in these things,
We’d pluck the feathers from an angel’s wings!
