When You Like Your Own Company

If there are any good things about COVID-19,  it is more time to yourself. Not productive time but time to just be and enjoy your own energy affected only by the energy of nature. I wrote this poem sitting on a second floor deck surrounded by trees and dragonflies far away from any people. Find your perch.

When You Like Your Own Company

When You Like Your Own Company

A little perch
with daisies I picked for their happiness
my ears attune to the tussle of leaves and breeze.
The Dove chocolate wrapper says
“be fearlessly authentic.”
I say “be fearlessly alone,”
in my breath and spirit
soaring with the dragonflies
in this place
in this body
in this moment
all mine.
