A Poem for Thursday....Here is a Miracle...

Here is a Miracle

Here is a miracle
 brown twigs
have turned green.
I saw it this week.

Here is a miracle
I saw it this week
colour exploded
along dusty roads.

Colour exploded
with orange and pink
purple and cream
on last week's brown twigs.

I saw it this week
and a fig tree survived
no need to go cursing
small fruit has appeared.
major epiphany.

Here is a miracle.

winter defeated.


  1. and don't it feel good?!

  2. Lovely, and a good reminder of what happens every spring. God bless your day Gerry!

  3. A miracle indeed Gerry - and it happens every year.

  4. Julie...thankyou so much for popping over to see the post.'s such a delightful spring this year. I love your latest post with all of the little hidden flowers as well.

  5. Winter defeated.
    __That natural process... a warming view so nicely posed. _m

    cold rain
    falling to these warm flowers
    life smiles

  6. Magyar...a lovely haiku. Thankyou!

  7. It is a miracle - and one that I never cease to doubt as winter clings so stubbornly. Doubting Dana, that's me :) Love the pictures from your last post - I'd leave the field wild too, if it were me.

  8. Dana..have you read Oz. Guinness's book, "The Holy Doubter"? I think you would like it. I did!

  9. I kno9w it's spring, why there is even some real green comin' in roun' here but oh my give some
