Mundane Matters

There’s a vast expanse of beauty

in the ordinary day-to-day.

In the first cup of morning coffee –

steaming

In waking up slowly,

In lazing in bed with a book –

simple pleasures


There’s a vast expanse of beauty 

in the familiarity of routine.

In the first cup of morning coffee –

steaming 

In tickling my baby,

In his vibrant laughter –

simple pleasures 


There’s a vast expanse of beauty 

in this typical humdrum.

In the first cup of morning coffee –

steaming 

In a pile of clean laundry,

Stacked just so –

simple pleasures


Mundane matters,

but they’re magical to me 

(when I remember to stop – 

and drink them in).
