Emotions like

Ping pong balls

Bouncing back and forth, up and down

Dismal lows, irrational highs

Waiting, waiting

For balance,

To level off.


For equilibrium

In this abnormal time

Yet what is normal anyway?

Who defines the word?

Perhaps the world is topsy-turvy

In these challenging,

Unprecedented days

Yet one day soon

The world will right itself

And we will look back

And remember when

  1. I hold fast knowing that change is always preceded by crisis. The bigger the crisis the bigger the change. As difficult as these times are I believe good will ultimately come – I just am not sure I’ll be alive to look back and remember when!

    (When I read your poem I envisioned ping-pong being played with baseballs.)

    1. Yes, I think so too, if nothing else I hope governments put more emphasis on providing decent health care – it has been on the back burner for too long.

      I hope we both live long enough to remember when!
      Thanks so much for dropping by – pin pong with baseballs, maybe you could invent a new game? LOL
