What is Saving You Lately?

Keating wrote:

We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and

write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race

is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble

pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these

are what we stay alive for. think the question for all of us at this time of the pandemic is: What is saving you lately?

Poetry is one of the things that is saving me during this pandemic.

It reminds me to stay in a place of wonder and helps me remember: We can get through this!

Here is a reflection which includes poetry of comfort, humor and connection during these strange times.
