By The Lake

I'm surrounded by people for the first time in months.

This feels normal and strange all at once.

I don't think about the virus for long.

Later I will reflect on why.

Social distancing is in place to protect us.

We follow the unspoken rules as best we can.

I float on the water and watch the crowd from afar.

This feels like a dream.

The last few months feel like a dream.

What's real now?

The worry or the comfort of people?
