Love in the time of COVID – Hour 20

In his hand, my lover carries plants and fertilizer and growing things. That’s what I love about him; he is a force for good. His is sacred work, tending to gardens like a modern-day St. Francis, a steward of creation. Against the backdrop of global pandemics and uncertainty, he gently considers the sacredness of life as he constructs our Garden of Eden.

  1. Love the comparison to St. Francis. Very unique. I also always thought of his connection just to animals, rather than plants. SO, personally, this gave me a lot to ponder about and research myself. Thank you for that!

  2. Thank you. Last year, several of my poems were dark as I had struggled through a long abusive marriage and with an utterly devastating divorce. This year, I am in love – at almost 60 years old!!!! I am at an age where I just stand in awe.
