Day 341 - Mundane Danger

We are in great danger of living
Ordinary lives without a moment's glance
At all that surrounds us as miraculous
For each and every moment is, if we wish it to be
The sun exposing each inch of the earth
Into life, raw and undefined
The smoke billowing from a fire for us
Keeping you and I cozy despite the storm
Even the rushing way we wave goodbye to it all
From the speeding simplicity of an automobile
We are in great danger of living ordinary lives
For we never believe in the extraordinary
