When all this is over

 

When all this is over,

Maybe we’ll think of how beautifully the first returning birds sang, 

and how bright the pink moon shone.

 

Perhaps we’ll remember the first warm breeze that nudged the mulch from the way of early daffodils,

the squirrels who entertained us,

or the elder who teared when a stranger brought bread.

 

Maybe we’ll remember the passing nods of greeting, 

or the middle-aged couple dancing in the empty street,

the letter written in beautiful cursive, or the smell of first-cut grass.

 

When all this is over, 

perhaps we’ll think about the angels who sewed masks for strangers, 

and sang to each other from a distance, 

those who carried food to our cars,

heroes in hospitals who focused on hope,

 

Parents who kept their children safe and smiling.

 

Our hearts may recall the return of the dolphins to Venice, 

and mountains fresh and visible for lack of haze,

the planet saying “See how easy this could be? See?”

 

Perhaps we will rethink the word “essential,”

and remember how we made soup, made bread, and made do.

 

And when this is all over, 

maybe we’ll recognize

we’ve always been connected, 

listen a little deeper, notice a little more, 

waste a little less, and live a little better.

Thoughts and Meditations:

 

           If we can muster up that degree of commitment and get away from the uniquely American perception that if something can't be done immediately it isn't worth doing, then I think the Hunger Movement, this small but growing minority of us, can have a truly significant impact.
