Poetry Friday ~ #Etheree #Poetry

5 Feb

Hi, everyone! A warm welcome to my blog.

Itโ€™s the first of the month and that means we choose our own syllabic poetry form, theme, words, images, etc. for Colleen Chesebro Poetry Prompt Challenge!

This video brought tears to my eyes. What a brilliant collaboration! I loved the poem these children created together. It’s filled with so much hope and love. They inspired my Etheree this week.

A virtual hug can’t replace your warmth

And “i-contact” is not eye contact

We’re forced to live differently

Animals venture further

while the streets are empty

We stay in our homes

And the skies clear

Birds sing songs

Nature

speaks

I hope you enjoyed today’s video and poem. Have a happy day!

    Fun! I do think some animals are braver since there are less folks about.
    I think I saw a coyote the other day!

    It is amazing how the children have adapted, Vashti. We are raising a generation of OCD fanatics.

      I guess it’s easier to adapt when you haven’t experienced much. They have less things to miss. However, it can still be a struggle. You may be right. ๐Ÿ™‚
