Apartments

For all those quarantined in apartments; this blessing of keeping for you…

As you descend the levels of quarantine

may you be protected by the ‘natural supports’ of the bark which encloses you

nurtured in your micro-habitat by all which bustles there in creative industry

upheld by strengths beyond yourself.

May you be enlivened in the company

of those above and beneath you

in new definition of belonging —

intimacy reassessed.

May you ascend the rungs of quarantine

enriched by beauty

you had not imagined.

God grant you peace, hope, and love

from those watching from afar;

we see the signal fires of your watchtowers

a welcome alert that you.are.here.

Amen
