In 2020, Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center in Maryland invited all ages to send homemade postcards to be included an important community art exhibit. The goal was to collect and exhibit postcards from the community that express our feelings and share how we all coped during the social-distancing period of the COVID-19 crisis. I submitted postcards (see 10:17-10:31) as part of this special online exhibidtion. This is a wonderful view of how artists interpreted this time of COVID-19 and brought messages of faith and hope to the world. Enjoy!
I smelled summer in the air
As I walked in the woods today
A new beginning
On a bright sunny day
Naturally my thoughts
Drifted to you like butterflies
Cause your presence stays with me
Like the air I breathe, everyday
In my heart you remain
I send my love to you silently
Over roads, highways and forests
Comforting thoughts in every way
A field awaits us
And I will feel your breath again
Against my neck in the dawning hours
like the warmth of sun’s light ray.
