Blooming in Isolation

A call instead of an embrace,
A wave instead of a handshake,
A text instead of close conversation
None are a loss but an exchange
Opportunity for change buried within fear
Taking time to work on forgotten ideas, lost
hobbies and reminisce with loved ones
A chance to breathe, reconvene, and focus on you
The path you have been carving
A change of direction perhaps?
The realization of diminishing time as it never
seems there’s enough,
And what you can do with it
The option to create, inspire and grow, not put on
hold, but blooming in isolation
