HAIKU POISE 2

Hot soup here Keeping at arms length; Face mask call-signs ~~~~~~~~~ Antiseptic atmosphere Pockets of isolation; Together yet distanced ~~~~~~~~~ Empty public places Ghost town feeling; Pandemic toll ~~~~~~~~~ Lockdown hits hard Widespread anxiety; Fear chokes worry ~~~~~~~~~ Global bad news Broken economies; A tragic retreat ~~~~~~~~~ Just a small virus Strangles our mortality; Deadly lung infection ~~~~~~~~~ Across the world Colour blind viral works; Shades of Spanish flu ~~~~~~~~~ News flash Death toll peaks; More on the way ~~~~~~~~~ Dangerous liaisons Gatherings banned; Contagious consequences ~~~~~~~~~ At last the moon Styles luna fancy; Magnetic convergence ~~~~~~~~~ Scary phenomenon Downtown ghost town; Crowded disappearance ~~~~~~~~~ Stay at home Internet escalation; Social creatures chained ~~~~~~~~~ Leon Enriquez 01 April 2020 Singapore
