the world stands still


the world stands still
so empty, so surreal
cars gone from streets
no friends nor stranger to meet
people behind closed doors
quietly keeping score

lost and alone
is there anyone home
silence is such a loud sound
when no one’s around
will the doors stay closed
while fear goes unopposed

a voice soars through the air
a song of hope and care
filled with love and faith
giving life with each breath
each note reaching far and wide
showing faith and love will not hide

  1. It is showing us another world mary, the one we have covered over with our ‘life’ for so long. And thankfully it is surprising many ❤️
    Beautiful words kind lady, another heart shining brightly in these new days. Thank you for sharing the love in your voice ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

    1. Thank You one of my faraway friends 🙂
      I have always worked at being a simple , I see so much fear and greed where “things” money” , hurt, and destroy people…
      my favorite quote ““If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.”
      ― Cicero

      is how I strive to live my life , I start decluttering before I came to take care of my mom, now it is just the way I like it 🙂 I don’t need money to buy the vanity trap, i cut my own hair ( sometimes not so good) give me a crystal instead of diamond kind of person, 🙂

      i have been in my greenhouse(in between chores inside), repotting today, its the best energy therapy i love “the other world” we have ignored or forgotten…

      I hope you’re doing well Mark….this is a crazy time and i wonder about my faraway friends these days a lot

      Be Well…Be Safe…..Take Care…….You Matter………..MUCH to me !

      Blessings from across the ocean to you, listen to the winds 🙂
      just me

      1. That is lovely mary, to be grounded in those simple things in life is a love indeed ❤️ 🦋
        And I can most certainly hear you in the wind kind lady, it is only by love that it blows ❤️ 🦋
        All well as can be over here and even though we are mid Autumn there is much sunshine, warmth and even someone singing from his balcony…quietly or the neighbors might not appreciate my sound 😂 🤣
        Take care dear lady, may you also be dancing in that sunshine 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

    1. Thank You 🙂 i’m glad you liked it…
      I ventured out for a drive one day, it was eerie not to see cars, people , just silence
      I love my solitude, I stay home a lot taking care of mom so social distancing is something I’ve always done 🙂
      but it was still eerie, with no one around…
      The music was shared to me a little bit after I got home, just seemed to fit the mood I was in …
      I’m glad you liked it,
      Thank You for stopping by, I appreciate it, not here much but I do wander within every once in a while

      Hope all is well in your neck of the woods
      Take Care…You Matter…. Be Well…Be Safe…..


      1. At times it is so beautiful to be to yourself and not having a lot of chaos all around. It feels lovely to be with the environment and enjoying the beauty all around you. Take care and stay safe. Music is so beautiful and when we listen to good soulful song it brightens our soul.
