This is day 2 of the December Open Write with Dr. Sarah Donovan's Ethical ELA. Yes, I love these 5 Day interludes with poetry writing! Today's challenge was to write a poem about a journey. I had so many thoughts, journeys of all different types - cycles of life, actual trips, even going for a run...but I kept thinking about this long line of cars that I observe every Wednesday at a food bank near me...a line that has been getting progressively longer during this pandemic. This is the journey I decided to write about, out of sadness for this season of so many peoples' lives.
