|on the day of the goldfinch sighting April 2020|
goldfinch buoyant on
waves of wind, yellow bobber
up down up down up
...and she smiles remembering the moment...
Haiku, walks, wordplay, sunshine, children's laughter (even if only on video chats)--and the goldfinch--are some of the bright spots that bring smiles my way while traveling this difficult path of the coronavirus. And the poem by Emily Dickinson, familiar to many, comes to mind:
HOPE IS THE THING WITH FEATHERS
by Emily Dickinson
"Hope" is the thing with feathers,
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all.
Wishing you bright spots, smiles, health and hope as you travel through these days, too.
