Daily Create Poetry Explainer

Daily Note

Every day, a photograph, a poem, or illustration. I awake safe in another day. It is March 1, 2022. March is the Slice of Life challenge, hosted by Two Writing Teachers and this is my post. It started with a Daily Create @ds106dc #tdc3701 Explain A Difficult Concept to a Five Year Old. I’m having trouble with my new iPad— my art apps are not working, so I’m improvising on my old iPad with an app I’m not used to. But I do not complain because I awoke safe. But my mind is thinking of the people of Ukraine— and their danger defending their democracy. The earth keeps spinning, day to night to day, rotating on its axis west to east while orbiting around the sun. Day and night. We do what we can with our own lives. Take care of and appreciate what we have, and hope for the people of Ukraine. Here’s an article in the Seattle Times of how you can help. Update: And an article How to Talk to Kids about Ukraine.

We can’t explain war. It makes no sense. But night and day, we can:

Day and Night

In dark space
The sun’s light shines
And while earth spins
The light is in
From sun’s rays
We call days
Stopping the light
From earth’s other side: now night
