GREAT NEIGHBOURS

GREAT NEIGHBOURS

Yesterday as the afternoon was coming to a close
The doorbell rang, it was Vanessa holding a beautiful rose,
For you I have just snipped it,
Still communicate, two metres apart seems fit,
Was touched, Vanessa and Neel’s, best neighbours, it shows!

Nice gestures are so much more appreciated these daunting days. Reach out, (but don't) touch someone, as Diana Ross never had to sing! Health and Good Spirits, Jenn! :) Gershon

No touchy that's for sure but I suddenly saw a friend I hadn't seen for years and just stopped from hugging each other in time! Look after yourself my friend - blessings, Jennifer.

Hi Sunshine Smile - that is sad because I know how much you wanted to move in - but if it's for the better right now perhaps that's good my dear friend. I see we are both under lock down but I feel safer this way. Look after yourself and your family - you are very precious to them and to poetry soup and to me! Hugs and love, Jenny

It is a fearful cruel virus that has hit us globally - all we can do is pray and be sensible and not panic. It was a lovely gesture but they gave it to me and turned away immediately- be safe Lindsay - you and your family. Blessings my friend, Jennifer.

Yes I know Paul you are quite right but it was quick and they were gone. This cruel virus is galloping at a fast pace across our planet, we must pray and keep our wits about us. Stay safe Paul my friend and your lovely family. Warm regards and hugs, Jenny.

Thank you for a wonderful comment dear friend - roses were my fathers best flower and he planted many in our garden, but when we sold our house and moved to our new one our gardener dug up all the rose trees and still have them now. Be well, be safe and we will chat again soon on poetry soup. Blessings Darlene, Jennifer.

It's those small gestures of goodwill that help keep us going, such a kindness for your neighbors to do :)

It was very sweet, they just rang the bell quickly gave it to me and walked away. Thank-you - kindness goes a long way, especially in these hard times we are all going through. Blessings Michelle, Jennifer.

It really is Caren, but we are all locked up in our homes not even a glimpse of a single person, these are cruel days. Blessings my friend Jennifer.

Hi Jennifer, love the content of your Limerick. That was a beautiful thing for neighbours to do. This Limerick goes into my faves. This is one of those forms I can never get right. Stay blessed, Jennifer. Hugs....Mike. XX

I find that with poetry I can escape the real world for a while, although the virus is always on my mind. Praying is all we can do my friend - be safe always. Thank you for a wonderful comment Mike and for making my poem a fav. I think of the grieving and it breaks my heart. Blessings, Jennifer.
