A period of silence

Reflecting on the challenges posed by this ongoing pandemic:

Reality met on its own terms demands …..another identity …..more silent and more here than the one looking hungrily for an easy, unearned answer.

David Whyte, Consolations

The long silences need to be loved, perhaps
more than the words
which arrive
to describe them
in time.

Franz Wright, 1953 – 2015 American Poet, East Boston, 1996
