Poetry Corner: Miracle Workers, by Jim Farfaglia

Miracle Workers, by Jim Farfaglia

The farmer –
moving through unplowed fields,
turning soil with his tractor,
unlocking acres of room to grow.

The waitress –
balancing an armful of platters,
meandering through crowds,
delivering satisfaction piping hot.

The mechanic –
looking at worn out machines,
fiddling with this or that,
bringing to life what seemed hopeless.

But only a mother can do it all –
moving through each busy day,
balancing children and chores,
looking at details big or small,

delivering life so we all may grow.
