National Day of Reflection

Today marks one year since the UK went into lockdown and it is also the National Day of Reflection;


I found this poem by Rajan Madhok and his friends so beautiful and so fitting for this day;

Not everything is cancelled

The sun is not cancelled

indeed it is shining brightly

Reading is not cancelled

indeed more enjoyable

Smiling is not cancelled

indeed even if you tried

as one reads the poems

sent by fellow poetry lovers

full of fun, life, celebration

during our virtual session

each sitting in own garden

savouring poems, weather, friendship

Hope is definitely not cancelled

made of sterner stuff

we will overcome this too

and soon....


Whether your reflection of the past has been good or bad, remember that better days are ahead!


All the best,

Dandee
