A Brief Pandemic Brief

Go Girl!

As the sky slowly

grows more clear, I feel my mood

begin to lighten

and send messages to my

feet to run and greet the sun.

Grist For The Mill

Another gray start

of day. Find myself wishing

it wasn’t this way.

Notice the bright song of birds.

Decide to join them with words.

When I Grow Anxious

With folded hands pressed against my chest, I

offer myself

comfort right

here, right

now.

I

breathe in

love, hold it

close, accepting

myself, offering kind understanding.
