Pandemic Poems

Poems in the Time of Pandemic

April is National Poetry Month

I have always been tempted to accept a writing challenge, like write a poem a day for a month. So, in honor of
National Poetry Month and during this time of pandemic, I am accepting the challenge.
I will post the poems here on this page as they are done.
Be well, stay safe. Strength and love.
