Elevator pairing, eyes lock
Metal door finality
Weather remark, whether to
Shoelace study forms a
Sharing only a cabled count
Hiccup stop, sonic pause
Suspended departure, one by one
— Kirstie Jones
So, I ask myself,
What if the birds stop singing?
Will life still go on?
— Frank Hollick
Like sand moving through the hourglass,
Many hands daily work essential tasks.
Though I’m lucky to hear the roar of the shore;
It’s a fortnight spent with a sense of discontent.
We enjoy extra leisure, yet feel this real unrest.
So while we’re stuck in our neat nests, let’s be productive pests!
Be proud you spoke up, gave donations, marched were bold’n brave!
If you love the U.S., vote for change and catch this blue wave.
— Mary L. Nolans
