Love is Contagious

My Hands: by Stephan, 2018
I wrote this before I knew the severity of the Corona Virus. Sadly I was mistaken. I was ashamed of what I wrote and trashed it. I just took it out of trash. If only this is just a bad dream and we'll all wake up.
"I'm a dreamer and probably will be one forever."

Here in L.A.
it's a cold grey day
but I'm warming up inside
change is about to happen
let's make this a happening

the virus is here
it's been here since the Spanish flu
a pandemic in 1918
and now it's number 19
I read about it so it must be true

I'm eating well
I promise to stay healthy
until death do I part
teaching Yoga and Zumba classes
and congregating in groups

are what keep us strong
they can't take 
that away from us humans
we left caves long ago

I'm no doctor
yet this I know--
we must
wash our hands from fear
keep on washing, keep on washing

I know--
prayer meditation and love
creates more serotonin
and serotonin more immunities
so, keep the love bug working

Love is contagious
so spread love everywhere
from your heart
in your thoughts, in your actions
let love fly, anyway you can

I love writing--It's my joy, my therapy--my confession. I'm a performer, dancer, yoga and meditation instructor, write a poetry column for Rafu Shimpo. Growth and love of life is a key to my happiness.
