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.
