NaPoWriMo 2015 ~ Missing the Miracle

April 29, 2015 ~ Missing the Miracle

DSCF4986

The leaves have bloomed,

Flung themselves out in careless freedom

Against the beaming sky,

And I, I did not even notice.

How did I miss the miracle?

How did I forget to anticipate

The birth of the spring,

This jeweled explosion that only comes once a year?

Why did I allow it to slip past me

Without a tear for what I’d lost?

I was blind this year—

May it never happen again.
