Meddling And Miracles

Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'! - Audrey Hepburn


How does it feel
to be everything impossible made possible

and real -

a dream drawing breath,
the star-spun wheel
busted and bested?

What do I owe
the goddess for such a striking show

of generosity to me 
despite my animosity
toward meddling and miracles?

A (possibly dreadful) rough draft for Hannah's prompt at Real Toads

You've chosen a great quote and made a superb poem out of it. I particularly like:
'a dream drawing breath,
the star-spun wheel
busted and bested?'

I love the same portion that Sherry mentioned...love the twist on this thought stirring quote...for sure and causes me to think about how sometimes we can stand in the way of miracles.

Thank you, so much for writing, Mama Zen!! :)

This is glorious and thought provoking Mama Zen! I love the line, "A dream drawing breath"...the miracle of life, such a mystery indeed. :-)

I almost used this quote! I know I greatly admired all her quotes. What a woman she was. busted and bested is awesome. As is "despite my animosity toward meddling and miracles". Loved the whole poem.

The "star-spun wheel" stanza is especially wonderful.

Suzy said...

Love your choice of quote. The dream drawing breath sounds beautifully mystical.

It feels pretty good, and I've yet to see you write anything dreadful.

Nothing's dreadful here, particularly like the end, it speaks of a generosity, of giving without recieving thanks.

I am liking your "striking show". Worn and tattered, yet "dream drawing breath, the star-spun wheel busted and bested." Some special days are like thst, really.
