Spreading love, joy, peace, faith & unity

Usually a person who sees the glass full,
not just half-full, and seldom empty,
this COVID-19 is getting to me.
A friend wrote a poem called a QUADRILL.
I decided to use its format to vent.

44 words –


All the world seems blue
Sadly holding its breath
Some behind masks
Some behind fear
Some behind doors
All afraid to breathe
Lest virus droplets lurk
Hanging in the air
Waiting to land
And infect
Particularly blue
Are the young
Socialization matters

It’s a lonely path we’re on.

Reach out across the blue.
We need one another.

See ya tomorrow.

    I totally agree Jan. It’s getting to me as well. Our county has had more new cases overnight than we had during 3 months of shutdown! Social responsibility has gone dark. I keep praying!!!!

    • Let’s continue to do our part, Fran. And encourage others. It’s getting harder to keep our spirits up, isn’t it!?

  3. Cases are rising in my state of Wisconsin. I try not to be “blue” but sometimes I can’t help it.

  4. Indeed

  5. ((((Jan)))) You certainly are a glass-full person, Jan, and even that group of people are allowed to vent when needed. You’re always here for us and now we are here for you too;
    Love and prayers, Jan. 💖 xx
    (I’ve been quiet the past few days as I’m coming off strong painkillers. It’s not nice, but I’m getting there)

    • Thank you, Lesley. I sympathize with that transition from pain killers. After my surgery, lived a week & a half on Oxycodone and it played havoc with my system. The weaning process and getting the system working again was not pretty. But, I survived it. You will, too. God bless you! 👍🏽🙏🏽❤️

      • Thank you, Jan. I hope you are starting to feel much better now. I’ll be resting up for a while. Lots of love to you and yours. 💗

      • Rest does wonders. Yay! 🤗❤️👍🏽

  6. Beautifully said Jan… Yes our species needs Hugs, it needs to connect… It needs to breath Oxygen not Co2 behind masks… I have finally got some time to reach out to connect to you Jan.. as I get into my reader today…
    Lots of love your way <3 Keep breathing those calm thoughts Jan… Yes it is meant to get at our spirits, and dampen our light….
    I refuse to give it the satisfaction.. Love and Hugs my dear Friend <3

  7. Jan, I wrote in another comment about the “blue” feelings surrounding me the past few days. I know I am not alone with these thoughts. With God out front, we need to continue sharing encouragement with others. God’s peace!
