We have a glass “bubble” ball that usually resides in our front room, but in the summer, adorns the table on our deck. Sometimes it captures the sun just right and these shots are from just such a day, August 19, 2020.
Trapped in a Bubble
As if in a bubble, we’ve been trapped far too long.
forgetting voices and faces, losing life’s song.
Travel destinations are far too close to home,
face masks, locked shops, one way aisles, no more room to roam.
Hand sanitizer, physical distance, the norm,
only together, can we all weather this storm.
Throughout the turmoil, there were some bright shining stars,
front line workers, volunteers and birthday line cars.
Even in a bubble, we have a chance to shine,
if we want the best outcome, we must tow the line.
