Dear Readers,

I hope you are all doing well in this new and uncertain time. I wish that we could meet in person at Sheena’s Place, have a hot cup of tea, and support each other in person. For now, I give you this poem about recovery and Spring.

Take care, and be sure to nourish your body, mind, and spirit.

Your moderator,

the buds on the trees

the shoots of green pushing through the cold dark earth

i feel the sun on my face and know the change is coming

i feel it in my soul as i reach towards the sun like the nearly blooming greenery and flowers

the wind is getting warmer and i am getting closer

closer to the sun

closer to the warmth

closer to the flowers

closer to my goal

i will recover

i will
