EIGHT DAY OF THE WEEK

I searched the four corners of the earth,
For a pearl in a dewdrop i could not find,
But a needle in a haystack pointed to the dearth,
Of children's laughter left behind,
As i passed every play park empty and sullen,
I asked "Dear Needle what is happening?

With a wink of her eye,
And a long drawn out sigh,
Said she: "this day of the week is called Today" and its just the two of us,
Everyone else is hiding from The Novel Corona Virus.

  1. Yeah, days have taken on a surreal form for me too sometimes. I still have to keep up with meetings working from home, but without those I'd have a hard time keeping track.

  3. It's hard to know what day it is, to know what to do in the not to do.

  5. Indeed, that is what it's like, in this strange (empty) continuous present.

  6. A nice way to visit the neighborhood unnoticed. In the Blogging world this is called "Lurking."

  7. Isn't it strange that nowadays you look at people differently. Are they getting too close? Why didn't they sanitize their hands before they entered the supermarket? Why don't they keep behind that line on the floor?

  9. Your poem is surreal and dreamlike, Gillena. I know that feeling of passing an empty playground, there’s one opposite our house, and it looks so lonely and sad. We just have to take each day as it comes.
