PANDEMIC

PANDEMIC Don’t tell me you are fine None of us is fine we nod and smile longing to chat. More than anyone else I talk to my cat – Even the geese down by the river Listen to what I have to say. I had quite a conversation this very day With one who chattered back. He cocked his head and listened to my candid response His answer? Don’t tell me you are fine when none of us is fine. we have tried to pass the days in many and varied ways But comes the time When weariness crosses the line And yet – we all say we are fine.

Good point. We have all gone through so much with the pandemic. I do know what it is like when wild animals actually listen to us speaking to them :)
