REFLECTIONS ON CONFINEMENT
The time goes slowly.
I’ve seen people wonder — what day is it?
Yet time flows so quickly
Moving through space as though on a super jet.
How do we pass the days during the Covid confinement?
We spend time reflecting
Letting go of fear
Sunlight produces longer days, yet the sun doesn’t reach my cheeks –
under the mask, which sometimes hurts my ears.
My hands are cleaner than they’ve ever been.
Caressed by cream, and dreams of health & freedom.
I forget to wear bracelets because I am mostly at home.
I give thanks for my shelter, food, love, my work, family, friends, and the air I breath…For I could not live without these…
Yet I ponder…What will the new normal look like as we round the corner of spring to summer?
I yearn for joyful surprise as this unfolds.
Joy, love & peace
