A bit of flour
baking powder
some milk, oil
a few spoonfuls of yogurt
throw in blueberries
or on special occasions
chocolate chips
mix well
pop into the oven

Before I can sweep up
the stray flour dust
and wipe the counter
take shape

Pretty silly
  but I'm always amazed

Watching the little
muffin monsters devour them
after First Day school
I wonder
which is the more miraculous:
that sweet,
in the oven
turns into tempting treats
or that the beating
of a human heart
plunged into worshipful silence
becomes the still, small Voice?

And whose delight is greater:
the muffin monsters’
or mine
experiencing the Presence?
