Happy Sunday

81883It was beautiful this morning
Waking up by brilliant morning light
Amie, our dog , bowing, barking bouncing—
Announcing that it’s time to play— this new day’s so exciting.

Birds all over chirping in their choir
Saying “Hurry! Seize this glorious day!

I Awake, jump out of bed,
Eager— Meeting Friends from Paris To discuss, on Zoom,

What we’ve now learned from life in quarantine.

Then joining on the phone with family, sharing love.

Springtime weather perfect, we take a little walk
Going up the street and back.

The Neighbors wave gaily to us up and down the street:
As they play with kids,

Teach one how to balance on a bike,
Have a picnic on their grass, happy together;
Shout out to tell us they’ve just left fruit bread, dinner, produce on our porch,
And to say if we need anything
To just holler out to them.

After this pandemic ends,

I want to keep this Loving Sunday scene week after week.
It’s real, authentic, joyful—
Life as it needs to be.

The Gifts of Crises
Praying it Forward
