Writer’s Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge: Miracle

Ron’s turn this week for his and Colleen’s Writer’s Quote Challenge. He has given us ‘miracle’ to use as our prompt word, and I have found the perfect quote to go with it!

“Just because you can explain it doesn’t mean it’s not still a miracle.”

– Terry Pratchett


The cry of a newborn baby

As he takes his first gulp of air

Despite being born at 28 weeks

He’ll survive with lots of care

The patient who has cancer

Given six months to survive

Yet five years on and still going strong

So happy to be alive

The changing of the seasons

Each one of them delights

With the freezing winter mornings

And the balmy summer nights

The planets in the night sky

Even going to the moon

Things that were once thought impossible

Will be reality soon

Miracles are all around us

From the moment of our birth

We just need to take time to notice

The beauty and wonder of this earth

  5. Beautiful and heartfelt poem. It reminds me of my dad. He’s a miracle. He was told he had three months to live––that was 18 years ago!
