the miraculous reduced to the mundane

singular
each of these
falling
is something new

unseen in shape
since the beginning

shoveled from sidewalks
brushed from cars

what was unique
drifts mundane in collective

reduced by quantity
to something less special
and more routine

in plural

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    People, too. All the miracles reduced to less than mundane in our modern worlds. ((SIGH)) Good one, Susan.
