The Miracle

*For Thad, age 10*

The miracle is

I can see blue—

blue sky

uplifting my gaze, my heart,

blue chairs communing in the living room,

blue dishes dotting the burgundy tablecloth,

blue wall flowing down the hall into the bedroom–

and you,

dressed all in blue.

You can’t quite hide

until you learn my secret.

Then, “Abra Kadabra!”

One movement,one garment gone–you disappear

and I dissolve into laughter

delighting in the miracle

of you.
