For you...

...under "Creative Projects," I have a series of "Pandemic Poems," including one called "Home School," with thoughts on what we might all teach each other while we are lying low.

...under "Resources," I have a "Poetry prompt set" in case your time at home calls you to explore the writing of poetry.

And under "Creative Work," some films & songs for your pleasure.

    Our Singer Come from Afar

         for Naomi Shihab Nye

 

Be our wren or warbler lit in willow

swaying with your tender weight

of songs, sipping the sky to tell us

hard things from far away you

freighted for our understanding and

comfort. Sing the mysterious harmony

of news and blessing, hurt and healing

offered with head high, eye bright

until with a friendly shrug

you flit away and leave us

strangely younger.

from Singer Come from Afar
