Some more poems, mostly written during Covid-19 quarantine, whilst I have been ‘shielding’ from coronavirus. Precious Moments was actually penned at the back end of last year, but seemed appropriate to include in this collection which I have called, The Quiet Time.
Life certainly has a way of coming at us! And I was thinking this year would be a bit calmer, after the raging storm of 2019! I’ve never known anything quite like this, I don’t think any of us have, hopefully we never will again.
People often ask me how I manage to keep smiling. The truth is, I don’t always. Sometimes I’m overcome with fear; but I think I’ve just learned to live for every day and appreciate what I have. There is so much beauty and love in the world, sometimes we just can’t see it because we’re focusing on something else.
Maybe we’ll all see things differently, when this is over.
