Postcards in the Mail

Poetry writing month series: Self-Care, Self-Calm as part of the collective whole.

I am privileged to lead a great team of great people at work. We have been sharing our daily “thrive” plans. Instead of just staying well during the COVID health crisis, we are doing little self-care and family care things to thrive. This poem was inspired by Melanie. She is enjoying walking to the mailbox in the spring weather and getting cards from friends in the mail. The picture below is a postcard from my friend Carol in Oregon. Send some cards with cool postage stamps to help friends thrive.

Postcards in the Mail

Send a little love
A tangible “thinking of you”
An instant imagination vacation
to a beautiful place.

Send a smile with your words
Messy scrawls or neat printed caps,
doodles or stickers,
it’s the thought that shares the joy.
