There are no waterfalls here.
No colossal mountains,
no rich forests, no valleys,
no fields for buffalo, no home for elk
or elephant, no sea for sharks,
no land for a moose.
But, for now, that’s how I like it.
My tea with a plain biscuit,
my toast just buttered,
to reduce a mind unnecessarily
cluttered with concern and worry.
Yes, I like it ordinary.
