A strange world

A year ago this day,the world changed! Marking the anniversary of the 2020 Lockdown! And another one on the anvil! Strange world, Unknown, A fearful silence, No honks blared, No loud sounds echoed, Pulsating life, Suddenly stilled.

A city wide, Teeming with souls, But a void in heart, Living in tiny holes, Cramped in thought, Suppressed in emotions, Arid in love, A mindless vacuum.

When warmth seeped, Infusing life into cloistered cages. A playful gambol, A fragrant melody, It reverberated the land. And now! An eerie… Continue reading Where
