Inside The Lines

by James Zealy

A small hand performs a surprise
Carefully making small marks amid the lines
It is a wonder this happens
When no one can explain
How those innocent eyes entertain
The view of such simplicity

Precise as a surgeon the colors fill the book
A journal that defies science
A testament to a living miracle
I cannot question the results

Faith is the creator
Of this contradiction of fact
The gift that is bestowed
Otherwise cannot be understood

Blessed by this miracle
The small actions of a tiny hand
Give hope where once there was none.


Author's Note: My daughter was born without sight. She developed it late, and lets just say that the fact she sees is a contradiction of science. When she became old enough her coloring was the first real indication of how well she could see.
