Within the Miracles: Pondering Earth Day

Jennifer Pratt-Walter

These are the wonders of Earth-dwellers: 
How plants harvest sun and remake its heat into food, 
then is harnessed by the plant eaters and up: an infinitesimal wink 
of sun and Earth’s boiling core in each warm-blooded cell. 
Is it not a marvel?—How us Animal people 
marry oxygen to our red blood cells, how we release 
CO2 for the Plant people, and how we all 
must return our bodies back when shed of life. 
How can we not live in unity and awe within the 
symbiotic choreography of such miracles?
