From “Thirty Poems of Healing” – #16

From “Thirty Poems of Healing”
By Tina Datsko de Sánchez

Even during this global pandemic,
a walk around the block
yields moments of healing and beauty.

In pink chalk on the sidewalk: “Throw kindness
around like confetti.” Gazing upward—
a redbud tree shimmers against clear blue sky.

Tina Datsko de Sánchez serves as Poet in Residence at the First Congregational Church of Long Beach. She is the author of the bilingual poetry book The Delirium of Simón Bolívar. Her four-book series of interfaith spiritual poetry inspired by Rumi and Hafiz is forthcoming from The Pilgrim Press.
