Bard 2021 Benediction

Final thoughts on 2021 as we say goodbye to another tumultuous year and look ahead with hope...

POETRY FOR INCLUSION

Peace to you in the pandemic wilderness that seeks infinite immunity.

Strength to the despondent souls searching for a

glimmer of transformative light.

Hope to the anticipating hearts flowing with the ingenious blood of Ubuntu.

Guidance to the nurturing hands that welcome communion of diverse objectivity.
