At a time where there is much uncertainty around us in relation to COVID-19, it is important to look after ourselves and one another. And to remember that as frightening as it feels to not know, that we do so not alone, and that we are a community even in the face of disconnectedness.
‘There are many eyes behind
windows in this world,
Digesting uncomfortable worry around facing the
Looking out, at a distance.
It has been raining, snowing, sleeting,
Some people outside were meeting
The bus-line moved
passed the length it usually stops at
And people have been keeping,
A safe distance away from
In the distance, there are foggy windows
With eyes peeping,
Below the pane
It is plain,
That there are other people
Behind other windows
Watching the world outside.
Connect with mine,
Which is comforting
That even in aloneness,
We are in this together,
As we look out at the
action between us.
Miles apart, there is synchronicity in the beats of our hearts
Watching breath expand and fall
Mirrored in the rhythm of the last leaves
skating and moving
Along the pavement.
The magnolia blossom, quivering
The rain, covering the
townhouse, like glitter shaken in the globe.
Small shiny pieces, softly scatter, like the ending of a storm
That will soon pass.’
