Suspended


Mind has gone numb
as the world slows to
a blur.

The bustle of life-
symphony of sound,
a whir

Where to turn now,
  and what does the truth
become?

Fact, fiction, fantasy,
or waking nightmare
for some..
so many
can any
one 
speed it
up? 

No backward
motion,
silly notion
of return
to what was-
it was what brought
us here-
the fear
palpable
visceral
as we 
wait
pray
play
and stay
inside-

hide
from the unseen
enemy

Suspended. 

CKP 2020

And saying farewell to a beloved musician whose popular hit is most relevant today.
We will miss you Bill Withers.

  1. This is timely and wonderful, Cheryl. Do nice to add the Bill Withers song. Great capture of the bee. Ours are still dormant, so it’s good to see one in flight.

    1. Surreal, Pam. Feels normal inside but the thunder clouds rumble...
