Neighbors (COVID)

Emma wrote today (about Peter’s relatives voting for Trump)

that she lives in an area in Pennsylvania

with Trump neighbors and she loves them

as people knows them well though she,

liberal Quaker woman of color,  fought

racism all her life but she knows too that people

every single person never simple and because she grew

up a Quaker she knows to respect all human life.

And now, she says, she realizes in so many ways

what she never understood before.

The work there is to do.

Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.


  1. Yes, how wonderful to understand that people are more than their ideas
    Thank you for sharing.
    Stay safe and well,
    Fran Medoff
