Writing Poetry

Charlotte Crane

I write in the quiet of the twilight
Amid the tall trees of a summer day ending,
Alone but for the cat companion, licking paws.
I see the sunlight fading,
The blue-sky lights turning dark,
And I write,
For I am alone.

The birds empty their feeder,
Squirrels nestle on a high century oak,
A possum edges around the porch corner.
The golden moon emerges above,
Stars twinkle to tantalize,
And I write,
For I am alone.

Life in the Time of Corona

Within weeks after March 11, 2020 World Health Organization’s declaration of COVID-19 as a pandemic, West Florida Literary Federation offered its writers a catharsis. By April, regional writers were submitting words and images to preserve this time in history. The ongoing project began with Phase I, a special edition of The Legend published in May. It featured more than thirty juried submissions. Life in the Time of Corona continues with Phase II, updated as submissions are accepted. Here are the voices of health care workers, poets, essayists, historians, and the images of artists and photographers, documenting this time in Northwest Florida's history. The ongoing project ends with the advent of a vaccine or declaration by the World Health Organization.
