Celestial Quarantin

2020 Pink Moon

Celestial Quarantine

The darkness in my heart forced me into the night

To a silver-colored sky and stars of laser light.

I heard nothing but the crickets and a night bird’s call

The air was fresh and there was no one at all

But the Pink Moon shining and the Big Dipper’s display

Who, together, calmed my fears and seemed to say,

“The world is hurting and the pain is real,

But the heavens will always make the storms be still.”

I stared a little longer at the celestial art…

…a picture of peace that stilled my heart.

I pray the skies embrace you and the stars kiss your face,

Until we meet down the road in a better time and place.

About Pam Avery Printed

I graduated from the University of Georgia in 1972 with a major in journalism (public relations) and a minor in business (marketing). My experience for the last 40 years includes working in the corporate world (banking), the newspaper industry (advertising design and sales), owning and selling a restaurant, restoring and utilizing several old buildings on the property, teaching private dance and drama lessons for 20 years, free-lance writing for a national textile firm, publishing two children’s books, and ghost writing a book. My last tour of duty before beginning the current chapter was working as a reporter, photographer, and columnist for five weekly community newspapers. And now I teach...media writing at Columbus State University in Columbus Ga. I consider myself very fortunate--I get to be around intelligent, energetic and enthusiastic young people. What a joy. I believe the written word is one of the most powerful tools known to humankind. And now we have the ability to reach millions with a simple click of the mouse. Wow.

    Pam, such a beautiful poem! I just read it to my husband and got choked up. Thank you for sharing it.

    I hope you and your loved ones are having a blessed Easter and that we all find a way to thrive and help each other to thrive during this tough time.
