The Poetic Hill: Pivot

Sandra Lee

Sandra J. Lee is a native Washingtonian. She has an adult daughter and works in the childcare field. Her poem below puts an eloquent spin on the changes we all experienced as the pandemic impacted our daily lives.


2020 was the year

We all had to pivot

From dining out to

Eating in

From going to a movie theater

To binge tv watching


From hugging friends and relatives

To waving from a distance

Get on your heels and

Switch directions
