TRANSITIONS by Elizabeth Holt
I am prepared:
Soup and bread in the freezer;
Kitchen cupboards filled
of every kind of food;
Analgesic in the tin box
Nestling beside the wasp-sting spray...
Transitions is about some of those times in life when changes happen: the loss of love; events in the past whose effects are hard to shake off; the shock of change that comes with ageing.
More recently, there are the enforced changes that the 2020 pandemic brought. But then, nature shows us that change need not be a bad thing — it can bring joy too.
