Safe Place, May 2, 2020

The 12th entry in Corona Diary, a visual journal,
a personal account of the Covid-19 Pandemic by Robin Atkins

Safe Place, large picture of piece for May 2, 2020, in Corona Diary, a visual Pandemic journal by Robin Atkins, bead artist

The words on the back of this piece are from a poem I wrote
on May 2, 2020, about my need to escape to some safe place beyond
the Pandemic, the need, perhaps for a magic carpet, soft and gentle:

"A plague of humans gobbles up the planet.
In a blink of history, life as we know it could end
with grim death by mass selfishness.
Yet we begin life as precious and innocent as wildflowers.
Where is a safe place for my spirit to thrive?"
