Suddenly, Life…

March 28, 2020 life

There are things
we like to have and do,
and things
we like to avoid.

And suddenly,
life will change the menu,
honing down our options,
to a whole new set
of “cans” and “can’ts”.

And in these times,
we may suffer greatly,
constrained within our little boxes,
unless we learn to stretch and bend
with life’s openings and closings,
to be as flexible and resilient
as life itself.
