Yesterday’s Miracles

Miracle

a believer’s word

for astronomical luck

or nearsighted perspective

milagroso

miraculous on any tongue

tongues of fire flickering flicking electric light at midnight

would have been seen as miraculous

200 years ago

so who are you to judge miracles,

Moses?

    Peter, just ADORE your tongue-in-cheekness here. You are getting better and better at versifying what I suspect is a natural gift of yours! Asking my person to call me “Rose” instead of “granbee”, indeed! I really respect your using this gift of twisting our points-of-view right back into our own eyeballs. We NEED this.
