Today, two men in the coffee shop shared a poem
written in big enough font so they could both read it.
Today, a bird saw me coming on the bike lane,
hopped out of the way, and chirped at me as I passed,
a greeting, I think.
Today, a little girl smiled at me across the counter
with a smile almost as wide as her face.
Today, a piece of metal from my bike
reflected a small rainbow on the path.
Today, I ate food born of the earth’s
dark, ancient soil.
Today, I spoke to someone across the Atlantic and
their face was clear as crystal as they told me about their life far away.
Today, the blue windy sky danced on my skin,
and by ‘danced’ I mean ‘opened my eyes.’
Today, a woman in the store told me she loved
to hear us laugh.
Today, two little boys laughed loud at all my dumb jokes
and all their own silly noises.
Tell me about your day.
Was it a miracle like mine?
