THE DAILY ROUND

 

In the Time of Pandemic

And the people stayed home.

And they listened, and read books, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still.

And they listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently.

And the people healed.

And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal.

And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed.

— Kitty O’Meara

Then, I was struck again by O’Meara’s words in an article that , a culture editor at OprahMag.Com wrote about her poem.

“We can wallow where we are or we can see the invitations. Anything that you can tap into that allows your feelings to be expressed creatively will do that for you. You will feel better on the other end of it. You will be changed.” — Kitty O’Meara

 went on to write, “O’Meara is not an expert on dealing with this global crisis, she says. She’s just another person, trying to find grace in the free-fall.”

And I say, “Amen. Me too.” Thank you so much for your deeply profound heartfelt words, and for sharing this beautiful piece of art with the world, Kitty O’Meara…thank you.”
