Transitions by Elizabeth Holt
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.
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...
