Countenance displays truth
a smiling pant conveys contentment

A ready smile invites a visit
spreads a familial warmth

A furrowed brow suggests concern
a child’s uncertainty during lockdown.

Words can offer intent
but expression speaks so much more.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. VJ, this is so spot-on! I’m exhausted by all the words (spoken, written) – your third image says it all so elegantly! That furrowed brow is the best icon yet for COVID Coping! Leave it to kids to not cover up reality.
