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.

Poetry Challenge #1

This will be the first Poetry Challenge for National Poetry Month. Please post your response as a comment. I hope you forward this challenge to people you know.

Write a poem about your favorite restaurant. Be creative. You may want to include a picture. I am hoping that this will reach as many people as possible. We need to support our local restaurants, bagel or coffee shops during the corona virus crisis.

You may want to send your poem to the manager or your favorite waiter or waitress. I am sure they will be thrilled. Where ever possible write in the name and location of the restaurant.

A challenge will be posted every Thursday and Saturday for the month of April. This first challenge is over on Wednesday April 8th.

Do forget to abide by the guidelines of Social Distancing.
