The beauty of this time

I know this time in history
will be sifted down into stories
of toilet paper hoarding and job losses
and photos of people in masks

and while the grief for so many is real
let us not be afraid to write the beauty
of this time into history too

of the way I got to know why the view
from my colleague’s window
reminds her to be strong

of that tennis match in Italy on the rooftop

of my mom and her neighbours who serenade
the seniors outside their care home once a week
carrying homemade signs like
we are here for you

these are the stories in the margins
of the generosity and innovation that happened
that spring while the world came undone.
