Busy . . . Not

Times, they have changed

Self distancing, no hugging,

Will we survive this?


I should not be complaining, I am healthy (and have an adequate supply of toilet paper). However, I am missing my friends. Missing yoga classes, karate classes, coffee shops. Tonight, melancholy has hit me hard. I sit and wait for the sun to rise and feelings to lift. It will be better tomorrow.

Waiting

Arm in a sling

Waiting for pain to pass,

Reading haiku.

What to do

Evening approaches

Western clouds are red and orange,

What to do tonight?

Pause before the storm,

Quiet days spent weaving,

Maybe a warm fire.
