We all know its meaning
We have all felt its intensity
Like a burn on our skin
when we open the oven and forget to wear a mit.
We all know its coldness as well.
Like freezing rain smacking your cheeks in the winter.
And yet we yearn to feel something, anything
that reminds us we are human.
We all need its loving.
It fills our hearts;
it guides our actions.
Some people tell us not to be emotional.
I say be the emotion.
Feel for those who are hurting right now.
Allow emotions to flow.
Love your neighbor.
Help people in need.
Tell someone how you feel about them.
Love life. Love yourself.
Our positive emotions will collide soon hopefully
and so strongly, explosively
that the virus will run home scared.
Peace and Love.
Health and strength.
