Recipe for Sheltering In

Annie in park

To a tablespoon of meditation
add a cup of journaling

stir in a session of reading
poetry or novel – no news

let the morning simmer while
staring out the window

pour in a phone call to
check in on a friend

sprinkle in a card game
played with your housemate

walk in the sunshine
bringing day to a gentle boil

when ready, settle down to an
episode of Cosmos

enjoy the concoction
noting gratitudes of the day
