Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

What’s There to Laugh About?

on April 1, 2020

In this strange and fearful time
My world turned upon its head
Rubber gloves high fashion statement
Toilet paper in great demand

Afraid of germ’s habitation
I harbor mail and cardboard boxes
Consigned to time in spare bathtub
For period of quarantine

Yet life goes on

In hall outside of my apartment
Sounds of ripping old wall paper
Redecoration still in progress
Beauty not to be deterred

Today I hear construction noises
Workers replace old swimming pool
Oak tree outside my window’s promise
Blossoming in tiny buds

That Spring will come

    I had to smile at the thought of people ripping off wallpaper … in my imagination it’s because they’ve run out of toilet paper!!!

    I had the same thought at Hidden Edge!
    And life will, eventually, return to a new normal, hopefully with kinder, more understanding people…
