NPM Spring Cleaning Day 28, Holding Hands


This poem called "Holding Hands" has been open on my desktop since November of 2020. We really do need each other. 


The poem goes well with this article about a wonderful friendship, also a long-term open tab. But not now that I've put it here in a Spring Cleaning post!

I saw this story about these two friends on CBS one evening during the pandemic. It's a sweet story, for sure. It pairs nicely with the poem you shared.

I hadn't see the 'high-five' story, made me teary, Ruth. And yes, we are all holding hands, this time for April, poetry month! Thank you!
