A Normal Kind of Peace
The birds were chirping, not just one bird but she could hear the songs of many different birds. Silently she just listened to the sounds of the birds talking to each other. Then she heard the ducks, she looked up to see two of them together flying overhead. I guess they were on a special date. Silently she just stood thinking how beautiful it all was. How normal, how sweet, how lovely a morning it was.
For a moment she forgot why it was so quiet and lovely. It was a morning in April in the middle of a pandemic. A beautiful moment in the middle of unending sorrows, a time to contemplate if normal would ever return for good. Hopefully it was a harbinger of what was yet to come. A quiet tranquil moment she just had to write down to remind herself that it will be okay. Someday.
