Awe

Virtual worlds collide
Airwaves replace touch
Community spirit

I am in awe at the resiliency and creative spirit that has come out of this pandemic. In response to Patrick Jennings Pic and a Word Challenge #224: Awe.

Untaken

Brilliant
Steps untaken
Parasitic RNA strands
Replicate feeding on ignorance
Isolate

Naturalist Shack

Where there was once a parking lot
An environmental education building
Now stands surrounded by a mass of water
As an ironic reminder
That everything is connected
and both actions and non-actions have consequences

Denial doesn’t change facts
Drowning in ignorance and greed
Climate change

Sea level rising
The naturalist shack
Returns to nature

You may be feeling very small and insignificant right now, powerless even
You matter and you have a voice
Don’t give up hope
Don’t give up
Don’t give up
Don’t give up…

Tiny golden jewels
Sparkle in cold winter light
Wild beach rose

Your time to blossom will come
Spring thaw around the corner

Tourist

Feeling like a tourist in my own country
Stoned by words of hostility and division
Having to check my patience while struggling
To keep my sense of retribution in check
Because if I allow the malignant cancer of hate
To take hold of my soul
Then I become the problem
And not the solution

The Point


A point of light
For a dark night and rough seas
No longer shines

We should all strive to be more Charlie. He was a true force of nature. RIP my friend.
