The 2018 Winter Olympics are officially underway in South Korea.

Olympics

the world waits

with baited

breath

as the tall

and tough

and miraculous

and strong

march together

linking arms

through the storm

of world events.

for two weeks

we cheer

we praise

we gasp

we marvel

and it doesn’t matter

which country

which flag

which person

takes the gold

because for this moment

we are all united

celebrating

humanity

celebrating each other

the miracle of personhood

revealed

shared delight

unveiled
