Miracles, have you heard of them?
When I see any I get overwhelmed
Theyre so beautiful and amazing
Theres something in them that keeps me gazing
The astrological formations of stars in the sky
Like Aquarius, Gemini and Pieces
absolute beauty to my eye
When the clouds look like a stampede buffaloes
And how amazingly the river flows
How the waves of the sea look like steps
Up to heaven in the dark nights
And how differently each fire lights
Something that is beautiful, but strangely so
Is the way at night a cats eye glow?
And 8you have noticed, that in the desert
When there is no water for animals, such as the horned lizard
A little bit of rain falls
then all over the desert, plants crawl
But they are true
To me they are miracles and maybe to you too
JokesThese three guys are out having a relaxing day of fishing. Out of the blue, they catch a mermaid who begs to be set free in return for granting each of them a wish. Now, one of these guys just doesn't believe it and says, 'OK, if you can really grant wishes, then double my I.Q.'
The mermaid says, 'Done.'
Suddenly the guy starts reciting Shakespeare flawlessly - and analyses it with extreme insight.
The second guy is so amazed he says to the mermaid, 'Triple my I.Q.'
Miracles happen all the time
On this Earth of mine
Some time visible sometime invisible
Yet they happen all the time
Another miracle like day and night
Is never out of sight
Darkness never gives the fright
Thanks to the moonlight
Acres of forest all around
Growing by themselves in the ground
Not a soul to water them all
To make them strong and tall
Different seasons, autumn and spring
Different phenomena along with them bring
Covered with leaves, covered with flowers
Which happens every hour
The swirling river
Gives us the shiver
Starting in the hills, ending in the sea
Along the way, meeting the bees
The birth of a child
Makes everyone smile
Is this not the greatest miracle of life?
Which goes a hundred miles
Thank you all mighty
For such a beautiful life
Which make the saddest smile
For once a while
The mermaid says: 'Done!'

Magic! What is magic? Is it when you make a rabbit disappear? That may be so. Or is it wen a magician makes a coin appear out of nowhere? May be. But, magical things in nature is something else. Something that just happens.
Sailing in a ship looking at the sea and the beauty of the waves. Watching the dolphins frolicking in the water along the ship or watching the whales spray out water and air out of their spouts.
Looking at the gigantic mountains touching the sky wondering how did they get so high. Seeing old trees living for over thousand years. Standing erect majestically. Jagged rocks each telling their own stories. Isnt that magic?
Looking at a desert dry deserted lifeless. Watching sand dunes move from place o place ever changing. Then rains! Al of a sudden all the shrimp eggs lying dormant on a dried riverbed come alive and there is as burst of activity and all of the land is covered by the carpet of flowers. Isnt that magic?
But the real magic is there for us to see every night. Highs up in the sky are millions of stars twinkling at us and the ever-changing silver moon. The work of some magical jeweler who has made intricate patterns using millions of gems. A magical thing for sure.
I wonder who is the magician who can make this happen.
Must be the worlds greatest one.

'Please,' says the mermaid, 'You don't know what you're asking... it
will change your entire view of the universe... won't you ask for something else... 10
million dollars, anything?'
