The Value of the Mundane

 by Brianna G. Harte

Coming across Dr. Seuss’ quote about the value of a moment, a poem seemed to grow.

You may be chasing a sloth

and realize that the game is dull.

You may sit on the floor doing work

and only slightly pay attention.

You may read a simple story with no plot to a toddler

and feel inclined to reach for a chapter book.

A mundane moment will never be more imperative.

It is not the excitement

Nor the action

that makes an event worthwhile.

It is the lessons learned.

The ideas formed.

The bonds strengthened.

The experience gained.

The hearts touched.

The list goes on.

But the words do not seem

to be worth writing

until the time has passed.

Forget not that each moment

is a teacher, a friend, a child.

And that it is worth remembering.
