Finding Joy and Cheer

What brings me joy is getting together with friends, oh, not in person, that's a no-no at this time but on line; we dance Latin and I love to find their smiles shine, love to organize my art, paints, pencils and pens. Walks each day brings happiness for Spring is here, have started a nature journal of sketches, words; I am getting accomplished at sketching those wild birds, life is adjusting and I am somehow filled with cheer. My cat is blissful to have me home for this time, lots of writing, meditating, painting and deep thinking; with all the walks and exercise I am shrinking, have seedlings thriving, flowers, basil, oregano, thyme. Social distancing is a drastic thing for us to endure, have found things within myself that I never knew before. ________________________________ March 29, 2020 Poetry/Rhyme/Finding Joy and Cheer Copyright Protected, ID 20-1239-886-03 All Rights Reserved, 2020, Constance La France Written for the contest, A Cheerful Rhyme sponsor, Line Gauthier Honorable Mention

The one thing shelter-in-place has given us is time. What you have chosen to do with this gift is commendable - projects, creative expression, organizing, gardening, cuddling with 4-legged friend. Congrats in your "cheerful" win today, Constance! Hugs ~ John

SO MANY people in this world without a clue who they are, or what they need, because thinking and responsibility have been passed to their cellphone, or the internet. Good luck on your journey! Aloha! Rico

Rico, being somewhat of an introvert who seeks silence, this self isolation and social distancing came easy to me because since a child have learned to entertain me alone (now that's another poem to create) I have so many things to do that there is no time left in the day to finish all I plan, and I am always thinking of more, anyways thank you so much for visiting my poem _Constance
