I want to take that “dare to care” that Ruth encouraged me to do,
But I feel so safe,
On cozy Tempur-Pedic with blankets
Warm and secure
I pull my comforter down under my chin
Spy snow… drifted like sand dunes
Outside— glimmering, radiantly
Beckoning me to
Unfurl my covers that protect
I take the leap,
Click on the Zoom.
I’m tethered to my girls
with frayed cords that bind us
For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.
