Pandemic Poem #22
Camp Chase Trail Connector to Ohio to Erie 4.22
Rain, rain, reconsider
Give up and go.
Orchids bloom beside bridges
Squirrels swing from oaks
Bluejay perch on pin oaks like woodpeckers
Striped chipmunks chase children through rotted logs
Two tiny swirled-shelled snails
I fear for their lives
acquainted with the feeling of
by the unexpected.
