Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Moving On

on September 12, 2020

Tomorrow they empty the pool
Drain away our summer oasis
Silence the happy voices
Leave us to start over again

For a while things seemed almost normal
People exercised, floated, swam laps
Children splashed while moms supervised
Many stretched out on chairs in the sun

Now we reenter a virtual world
Zoom connects us for learning and fun
School is in session a variety of ways
We will discover new ways life can go on

    Simply beautiful, Ina.
    End of summer is so bittersweet.

  2. A sad ending to one season, but let’s hope the next one is fruitful.

    At least there were some almost normal days. YAY!!
    Not much is normal, anymore.
    Be well!

    A slice of life from our current times. We are called to shift and shift again.

    Discovering new ways for life to go on… Perfect words for this year throughout this piece of yours, and then you give an ending we all must take heart in πŸ™‚ Discovery of new ways. And I think this year more than any other, when the draining of the pool occurs at the end of summer there is a bit more sadness because those moments that seemed as close to normal and a pleasant reminder of happier days go away too. Take care ~

      Thanks, Dalo. Maybe I will write the humorous happenings of having my groceries delivered. I haven’t been inside a grocery store since March. It will probably be a tame experience going back.

    And in new ways life does go on. Makes me think of something Einstein said, β€œIn the middle of difficulty, lies opportunity.” Great to see you looking at the other side too. Hope you and your loved ones are safe and well πŸ™‚
