Poetry in the time of Covid-19

As we all adjust to new schedules, worries and lives in the wake of this pandemic, I find myself thinking a lot about the power of poetry. I'm reading more poetry by inspiring writers like Maggie Smith and Maya Angelou and e.e. Cummings. 

I've always loved to write poems, though I'm not the best at understanding and following all of the rules that go along with some forms of poetry. But I also know that poetry can be what we make it-- and it can free our souls when despair threatens to take them over. 

So, for the balance of this pandemic I plan to post a poem each day with the intent of bringing some more love and understanding into the world. 

If you'd like to add your poems to the comments or email them to me at jennagrinstead@gmail.com, I'd love to feature your work in this forum, as well. 

Let's work together to bring a little more connection to the world through poetry in this trying times.
