Transformation

A bit of flour
sugar
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
muffins
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,
runny
batter
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?
