The Ordinary: Poem 4 of 30


THE ORDINARY

It's the ordinary,
The cup of coffee in the morning,
A sweet piece of chocolate,
Your favorite shirt,
Music.

It's the ordinary,
The gentle sound of rain,
The full moon hanging in the dark night,
The song of the robin,
Sunrise.

It's the ordinary,
The conversation around the table at night,
Time to read a good book,
A call from a friend,
Laughter.

It's the ordinary,
The small moments in life
We collect in our hearts.
It's the ordinary 
that is extraordinary.
