The Wick Poetry Center, in collaboration with the Ohio Nurses Foundation, presents Sacred Breath: Nurses Respond to COVID-19.

This website provides a creative space where nurses can pause and reflect on their personal and professional lived experiences as caregivers during the historic time of pandemic, sacrifice, uncertainty, and scarcity, and to share their voice with others. 


Select from a short prompt to add your reflection to a growing collection of reflections and stories from others. The prompts will spark your thinking and memory, allow you to express your hopes for the future, and share your feelings of gratitude and compassion for others.


Traveling Stanzas community arts projects bring poetry to people’s everyday lives through innovative methods and digital platforms.
