Miracle

It is not the flower

that chooses its own colour,

nor the sun that

controls its heat.

It is not the fuzz of the dandelion

that chooses its function,

and while the chameleon

may choose its location,

its disguise

is but circumstance.

It is not the berries

that choose their own poison,

nor the butterflies

that choose their brilliant pattern.

It is not the caterpillar

that decides to be a butterfly,

nor is it the dew

that chooses, so quickly, to die.

And so it was not me

that made this possible

but you, that chanced upon me

to cause this miracle.
