March 20, 2020 | Lovely Words Zorie Living

a poem that has lifted my spirits written by - lynn ungar - 3.11.20


what if you thought of it
as the jews consider the sabbath
the most sacred of times?
cease from travel.
cease from buying and selling.
give up, just for now,
on trying to make the world
different than it is.
sing.  pray.  touch only those 
to whom you commit your life.  
center down.
and when your body has become still, 
reach out with your heart.  
know that we are connected 
in ways that are terrifying and beautiful.  
(you could hardly deny it now.)
know that our lives 
are in one another’s hands.  
(surely, that has come clear.)
do not reach out your hands.
reach out your heart.
reach out your words.
reach out all the tendrils 
of compassion that move, invisibly, 
where we cannot touch.
promise this world your love
for better or for worse, 
in sickness and in health, 
so long as we all shall live.                 

--- may it be so. all my love.
