The New Normal

Social distancing, 6 feet apart

Talking with my neighbor,

Keeping our 6 foot distance,

Our words floating through the air

Land upon others ears

Across the courtyard.

Soon a 6 foot convention

Gathers. “The new normal.”

My Goal

Chipmunk gathering acorns in the Fall
Original art by Leona J. Atkinson 2020

Gathering

My mind

Always open

As I go about my day

To gather information for

Sharing

With others

Sifting out the negative it

Stores tidbits to encourage

Help and inspire

Your day

Butterfly Cinquain

It is my goal and hope that I can do this daily, and that is why I write poetry and create art.

Thank you for following my blog.

I hope my daily posts accomplish my goal and that in some way you are uplifted them.

Grand-daughter, her boyfriend and I enjoyed a fun night of music in the park and a Classic Car Show. Grand-daughter brought her ‘85 RX-7 to show off 🙂 and we got to listen to our favorite country music singer too. I love Summer!!

Looking out my patio window just now I saw so many different birds visiting my yard eating the birdseed I had put out.  Previous to today there had been only a flock of Chickadees and occasionally a robin but today many different kinds descended at once together! It seemed as if someone had created a flyer advertising a free lunch in my yard!  That thought inspired today’s poem 🙂
