Corona

Author: LUCY CALCOTT

I write poetry, children's stories and the occasional article. I am also a painter and usually work in acrylic and water based crayon. I love colour but also enjoy using charcoal. I am principally interested in an emotional or spiritual response to landscape but I like figures too. In my writing I am searching for a contemporary religious female voice which is tolerant and open hearted as an antidote to the cynicism of our time. I have a MA in Creative Writing from Sussex University and have had poetry published in various journals. I also have a small collection of poems in print; Magdalene and other poems. I have exhibited paintings and poetry locally in Eastbourne and the surrounding area and with Christian Arts nationally. I am also a nurse and a mother of three grown up children. I am active in the interfaith movement.

One thought on “Corona”

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful poem of yours. Are you ok with me sharing it with other good friends who I think would appreciate it. You articulate so well what many of us are thinking and feeling. Although we are experiencing what it is like to have your foundations shaken it is also an opportunity, a wake up call to recalibrate, to do life differently. My only concern is whether when everything eventually settles back to normal we are willing to do the work of learning and changing or as humans are so apt to do we go back to our old ways, like the person who wakes with yet another massive hangover vowing to never do it again, but two days later with memory of that awful feeling faded is back at it again! Love to you and yours my beautiful soul friend Rupert xxx
