On Wonder

searchpp.com


If you're in need of miracles and wonder,
contemplate this:
somewhere in the world,
 in deep greeny-blue mysterious Mother Ocean,
a baby seahorse is being
born
right this minute,
from his father's pouch.

  5. I've always though that it was weird: seahorses coming from their father. The world really is a mysterious place.

  9. Perhaps the first male seahorses complained to the creator and so women were given the task instead. Too late however for the seahorse.

  14. Nature is just amazing. Now one can rightly say the man in the house had already chipped in for the sharing of domestic responsibilities! How nice Sherry!

  15. one of the two miracles of creation that i truly appreciate the other of course is the 'mariposa'
    oh and then there is the eagle, oh and the wolf

    but in the midst of all this is the miracle that resides in darkness and to someday walk out and see the light; the human

    gracias mi amiga for this lovely reminder
