Philip and Eunice Cornwall, Muskoka Autumn
Circa 1979

We want miracles.
We have miracles:
in each breath
and smile
between strangers,
with every blazing,
red leaf
that dances
on the autumn breeze
before coming to rest
on the still-green
summer lawn.

What is it you need
beyond the potential
of your eyes opening
to a new day?
For therein lies the miracle,
the potential for creation
of love
and beauty
and kindness.

Dear life,
you are my miracle
and I am grateful.

With love and blessings to all.
-Gillian Cornwall, September 9, 2012.
