Poetry writing month dedicated to coping and thriving during the COVID-19 pandemic journey.
The words we choose to describe our experiences, make a difference in how we feel about them and in the choices we make next. I have been noticing my words and sometimes I don’t choose the right attitude. Time to work on that.
The Words We Choose
Is there a difference between
safe at home,
shelter in place,
obeying a stay at home order,
being trapped, cooped up, forced from work?
Some call this separation from normal
a vision quest,
an exploration of our consciousness,
a time to remake ourselves, our work, our space
What are we grieving during our exploration?
What do we fear? What is shifting?
Who are we becoming during our exploration?
