April 2021 PAD #08 grievous

again

again

this is
a twelve-month . . .

an eighteen

of loss
and of grief

such a time

so many names

known
and familiar

and the world
grows smaller
while it tries
to grow
apart . . .

demands
more distance
when we need
more closeness

again

so much
of loss
is grievous

  1. There is talk here of California opening up completely by June 15, with vaccination levels reaching “herd immunity.” I am skeptical, and concerned that we may go right back into another surge, but we’ll see! For now, it’s great to be able to visit with a friend on a restaurant patio over a nice lunch!

      • Absolutely, Frank, and in the midst of two other life-threatening issues I’m chasing, I’m not taking any untoward chances these days. I have had two Pfizer shots, though, and outside with a slight breeze seemed ok for lunch today! Risks and courage are definitely the two words of my days right now!
