Miracles


The Wordle

SUNDAY WHIRL

We are  asked to use the random words in the wordle.

                                Hociung
MIRACLES

Why search the heavens for miracles when they lie all around?
Fish swimming rapidly through coral without a single sound,
Bees as they balance on a petal, taking honey from the flower,
The safety and strength of a great horse and its perfectly-managed power,
Chameleons with eyes that swivel, as motionless they stand,
The eloquent finger of a chimpanzee as he scratches in the sand,
Cats when they're cleaning their whiskers, with infinite care and grace!
There is no doubt about it; the world's a miraculous place.
We don't have to see any point in it, it just IS it seems to me,
But aren't we lucky to be creatures that can think and hear and see?

CONVERSATIONS

'I've told you time after time!'
'Time-out, kids!'
'Bath-time, you two!'
'I must make time to visit her!'
'About time, too!'
'I never have time to myself!'
'I suppose I'll just have to kill time!'
'Quality time is what we need!'
'Time, Gentlemen, please!'
*
The earthquake struck!
The stone clock in the market place
Broke like a biscuit.
The conversations ended,
Abruptly.
Time died.
Tick! Tock!

What beautiful thoughts you expressed in this wordle. Yes, there are beautiful things for us all to behold if we only take time to SEE.

Ahh, rhyming couplets of grace and beauty, gently embracing the wordle words. Rinkly, you make it look so easy, and then follow it with the death of time. Your blog has become one of my favorite stops every week. You NEVER disappoint.
