A Beautiful Day in My Neighborhood

Spring flowers blooming and sidewalk chalk art

Neighbor

And I had a

Delightful walk today

Inspite of all the troubling news

We saw

Colorful flowers blooming and

Cheerful sidewalk art

On display in the

Sunshine

Butterfly Cinquain

“This Too Shall Pass”

Photo of March 15 “The Grace of Encouragement”calendar page
My calendar today inspired this poem.

Troubles

Like storm clouds

Floating into our lives

Will flow out like river water

Fear not!

(My mom lived in and survived the Great Depression. “This Too Shall Pass” was one of her favorite sayings. It is also becoming one of mine.)
