Transported into Simplicity

Treasure of simplicity

Captivates imagination

Transporting senses

To yesteryear

When freedom of movement

Taken for granted

Solace in Spring

After a long winter

Spring breeze filling the air

Yearning for open waters

Under sunny skies

Empty boardwalk

Contribution to social distancing

Benches empty

Waiting it out

Here I sit calmly

With my daughter companion

Wondering when it will all end

Imaginary Calm

Lady seen reclining

Feasting on imaginary tales

Words written long ago

When the world was full of wonder

Today she picks up a new book

Author unknown

Full of cliffhangers

Ending still to be written

Domino Effect Creating Chaos

History repeating itself

Microscopic invasion

World shaken

Difficult times

Troubled waters

Ripple domino effect

Grounding necessary

To dissipate fears

To find calm waters within

To have faith

That this too

Shall pass

Serene Moment

Morning vision

Serene calm

Cooling breeze

Senses transfixed

By wonder

Shadows from the Past

Befriended by

Dancing shadows

Playing in the sunlight

Swaying with breezy abandon

My shadow photographing this tree. (Images from archives)
