lockdown | discover | four | street

i’d trade my street for yours
if i thought it would mend
your,
heart

our street(s)
today
winding toward nowhere

all our
streets
yours – mine – theirs
blocked

but, the street(s)
inside
our hearts

yes, even
yours

remain open, to our world

– a poem inspired by further on up the road, bruce springsteen and the sessions band, dublin

For the newly reconstituted, and sorely missed, WordPress community’s latest initiative Discover Prompts Day Four: Street. Thanks to Ben Huberman and the WordPress Discover team for stepping up to the plate.

Stay safe and well and let’s fight this thing together, and make sure we don’t forget the lessons we learn when we reach the other side.

one sunny mornin’ we’ll rise I know
and I’ll meet you further on up the road

– lyrics from further on up the road, bruce springsteen and the sessions band, dublin
