There is great comfort found in ordinariness,
Just resting upon its quiet sincerity and being.
Nothing so outlandish or garishly overbearing,
Run of the mill perhaps but with a sensible view.
Loved for ease of connection and communication,
Without long winded and elongated exuberances.
Pretentious mannerisms are never ever entertained,
What you see is what you know and what is familiar.
Dressing up in best top tails and ties is a fun adventure,
Standing on formalities is not always most comfortable.
Photographic ensembles return a more natural review,
When captured in great moments of informal joyfulness.
Routine may be considered mundane in its daily passing,
Yet its regularity returns a sense of orderly contentment.
