Good Days Ended ~ #StandWithUkraine

A smile worth a thousand words shown on her face

It was one that rose above the chatter of the café courtyard

The harmony of space and time, stood still

Stopped on a dime to capture just one moment

“Smile big, Oksana!”

The next day… the smiles turned to frowns.

Ears rung as a barrage of bombs fell.

The skies turned to disaster.

People sitting now scattered.

Life changed and stood still again.

Life would never be the same.

I stand in solidarity with Ukraine. If I can find a mission going to Poland, I am on my way to help.
