A Day of Sun
A day of sun,
there will be snow tomorrow,
just like a Colorado springtime.
We pick sage along the trail,
my son tells running stories
the entire time,
I have nothing to do
but listen with my whole body
as mountain bluebirds
sing the backdrop.
When I talk to my lover later,
there are sweet staring pauses,
I watch his face on a screen,
so close but not
The children make dinner together
they are soft with one another.
I dream of listening to the guitar
of my dead music hero,
while my friend runs her fingers
through my hair in the grass.
Day nine was very nice and relaxing. I watched American Horror Story for a lot of the day, then I cleaned out the baskets full of random stuff in my room. I hung out with E then at the end of the day, I cooked dinner with my mom and brother. It was a nice and calming day. I obviously miss my friends, but we have been going on walks every day and that really helps me stay connected to them. I know this virus isn’t going to go away soon so I know I need to stop hoping, but we can still be hopeful that everyone stays safe and we make it past this. I’m so excited for when this becomes a thing of the past and we’re all back to our normal lives. I know that a lot of people in the US are not taking this seriously and that’s why it’s spreading so fast. At first I was so mad that I had to stay away from my friends, but now I’m grateful that I’m in one of the families that made the right choice. I want everyone to stay inside and keep their distance from other people because if everyone in the world did that for around two weeks, we could get rid of the virus. On the bright side, I have had a lot of time to do art and to do things that I wouldn’t normally have time to do.
Today we woke up and did our schoolwork after that we went on a hike. I also played with my friends on xbox. When we got back my sister and I made dinner. We had a beef rice and cucumber bowl. I then played more games and after that we went to bed
