The Good Old Days and Surfing the Waves. Two poems by Duane Anderson

The Good Old Days

A trip down memory lane,
the good old days, only days ago,
returning to year 2019

before the invasion of the coronavirus.
A time when most people worked,
classes held in schools,

people attending sporting events, concerts,
sitting down to eat at restaurants,
shopping, working out at gyms,

a walk in the park.
It used to be, once upon a time,
as one turned older, they

reminisced of the good old days,
memories of their youth.
Now, the good old days,

for one and all, a short time ago.
Times have changed, so quickly.
Yes, we all wish a return for those days.

Surfing the Waves

Devilish illness, invisible enemy,
first wave, second wave,
the waves seem endless.

I am on a surf board,
riding the wave.
May I ride this one out.
