Rebecca Rountree

Rebecca Rountree lives in San Mateo with her husband and two teenage children. The current crisis has rekindled her love for creating – poetry, art, movement – and this is her first poem in more than 20 years. 

Poem

This is no war
But I’m not at peace;
Earth on fire
No relief.
Rain outside but can’t wash clean.
Together all-
Apart.
Unseen.
