Rosy Outlook in the Distance

Good morning everyone,

The Ragtag Daily Prompt this morning is ROSY HUES

I arose just before 6 am this morning, but the rosy hues of dawn were long gone. The sky was bright, the birds going about their business, and the temp was just above freezing. But the predicted high is 25 C and the sky is blue above us: the makings of a warm spring day.

Perhaps the prompt-giver was thinking of other ROSY HUES — figurative ones — which I also thought of this morning. A few days ago my husband informed me his favorite book store in the city plans to open next week, along with other stores. Access limited to fifteen people at a time, but still.. The dawning of a new era.

one by one restrictions lift
people begin to breathe
to move about, to gather
cautiously at first

stores open their doors
employees take their places
the world faces a new dawn
its
rosy hues
still in the distance

    1. I am, too. And some things will change, no doubt: new restrictions and what not. Some folks say we can’t/won’t be nearly so dependent on “Made in China” from here on.
      But human nature is often about “shutting the barn door after the horses got out.” We’ll fix this and be all prepared for the next super-bug — and something different will come along to jolt us. Good thing we’re such survivors. 🙂

      1. “Some folks say we can’t/won’t be nearly so dependent on “Made in China” from here on.” Too good. I think we have had enough from China. Oh yes, there will be many hurdles to jump, be it on our own or as a community. Well said, Christine.
