A Time of Stillness
Neat nice homes standing side by side.
Where there used to be neighbors mowing the lawn,
Resting quietly in the shade of an old maple tree,
Waving to neighbors who are also in their yard and
some taking walks through the neighborhood.
The area now seems like a ghost town. A few cars
sit idle in driveways and no one visible through
windows of the homes. Arising in the middle of the
night and looking through your window is sad and
disturbing. The quiet of the night seems like you
are alone in a field of grass with the light from
a shadowy moon enveloping you in a time of yesteryear.
It is taking you back to a time of youth, laughter and
living a family life of love.
The present is now when we hope and pray that the
dangerous and fearful virus of COVID19 will be erased
from every part of this world.
