Hi all. I know so many of us are tired of reading post after post about this pandemic. This is just what was on my heart this week. This has been hard for so many of us in so many ways. A few weeks ago, I wrote a piece about loss during the pandemic for a writing seminar. Along with this week’s poem, I’ll put a copy of that piece at the bottom of this post. I know many of you come here for a quick read, so I’ll put the poem first, but if you’re interested, I recommend reading the seminar piece first, as that was my inspiration for the poem.
This week alone, so many people I love have lost people they love. Each time I got the news, I’d think back to my piece and to how awfully real it has become for people. I’m sorry if this week’s post is a bit heavy. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
