Normal Life

Back to normal life its time Lets consider our normal lives The life we all know Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan Apartment prices, oil, and gasoline Ukraine, Russia over and over again Standing by for what happens next Banks implode, viruses explode Ah yes don’t forget World War 1 and 2 Still there is Disney, and sunny skies The squirrels that show up by The kitchen window for nuts And loving cats, dogs and smiles Normal life is definitely complicated I suppose its time — life is creative Difficult, dark and still to be celebrated

I am happy you ended this with a positive note. We do have a lot to celebrate. Keeping away from the nightly news helps. Though I need to watch it sometimes. I enjoyed your poem that took me back to normal and ended with a happy smile. Thank you Linda. Blessings xxoo
