Wave of Nostalgia

In this quiet moment

My hat sits waiting

Ready head out

In a search for tranquility

I walk alone

Oblivious to past worries

No decisions to make

Totally absorbed

A wave of nostalgia

Washes over me

Like a cooling breeze

On a hot, summer’s day

Then a tiny movement

Catches my eye

And I realize

I’m being secretly watched


(P.S. I lost that hat a few years ago in Hawaii, taken by wind.)

    Ah, the luxury of no decisions to be made. Lovely. Too bad you lost that hat, but at least it has a story to accompany it.

      I appreciate your single tear of empathy, Abrie. Yes, a hat can have much meaning since it comes with us on many journeys and gives shade from the sun. I do have another replacement, but I still miss the one in the photo. šŸ™‚
