Looking Forward

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 #318
Hindsight is 2020

"They say hindsight is 20\20. 
Let’s look back (try not to cringe!) 
over this year, and find something good. 
Look back over this year and share something 
good in your own life. Perhaps look back 
through the news to find something encouraging 
that was deemed newsworthy."

An awful year. 
We shed copious tears.
So hard to conquer fear
when dealing with an unknown sphere.
I witnessed neighbors come together,
shopping for whomever
could not chance weather
-ing storm so sinister.
Existence of technology
allowed isolators to see
their friends and family,
and catch up on movies on TV.
Now we have hope with vaccine
to stop spread of this obscene
killer.  We must succeed
in regaining health, living free.


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
