threads that keep us tethered to each other are unraveling,

Wind breathes a swift sigh
Leaves rustle to give applause
Birds bow in thanks
Bright blooms now bow down
Dull Frost nibbles edges
Spring or winter now?
As the phoenix burns
Fireflies twinkle in ether
Cool evening settles
Just four more to go before
Stream music notes
Red maple leaves rustle

The of year of masking up, or irately prompting “you’re on mute” was the year when people in America spoke up, spoke out, and spoke their loudest.
oices from Black Lives Matter. An administration that objectified women and trampled on their rights was booted out by the MeToo ladies.
After all the masked citizens of the country showed up and did the right thing, the leader of this administration was muted by the highest court.
Finally, after four years of pretending to be an ostrich, many good human beings in this country can come up for air and breathe a little better, safely within the confines of their masks, six feet apart.
The journey ahead is long and partly even dark, which will lighten to gray, but at least we are marching towards the white light. The dark void is behind us. With leadership of empathetic and diverse individuals, the future state of the nation again has hope.
Even as we put 2020 behind us with all its dark memories, the movements must carry on.
MeToo’s must continue to educate and fight for the rights of women’s choice of what they can or cannot do with their bodies and that no means no.
Black Lives do continue to Matter, and these cries need to remain loud and clear to drown out the millions of gun toting, white supremacists who still troll the streets of this country, or harbor racist and xenophobic sentiments under the guise of uniforms of protection and law enforcement.
The survivors of this pandemic need to keep shouting at the top of their strong lungs to never let the world forget those whose lungs gave out to this horrid virus. Lives lost must not be in vain.
While we continue to mask up and remind the zoom speakers “you’re on mute”, our voices are louder, our lungs are stronger, and hope is back so we can Breathe Freely!
