A Poem Shared from Rhona Kaczmarczyk

Hi all Friends and Members,
I wanted to take the opportunity to reach out and share with you something beautiful from my Irish Heritage. It is Prose from an Irish – French writer, Kitty O’ Meara, composed in 1869 – written after the Great Irish Famine.

And people stayed home
and read books and listened
and rested and exercised
and made art and played
and learned new ways of being
and stopped
and listened deeper
someone meditated
someone prayed
someone danced
someone met their shadow
and people began to think differently
and people healed
and in the absence of people who lived in ignorant ways,
dangerous, meaningless and heartless,
even the earth began to heal
and when the danger ended
and people found each other
grieved for the dead people
and they made new choices
and dreamed of new visions
and created new ways of life
and healed the earth completely
just as they were healed themselves.

Kitty O’Meara

Please stay healthy, stay safe and stay home.
