Reena’s Exploration Challenge

Welcome back to explore the innermost recesses of our minds!

PROMPT #163

We are getting ready for a re-lockdown here, after a sharp spike in the number of Covid cases.

Here’s a video depicting a poet’s interpretation of life in lockdown.

Take us into your inner world., and let us see how you view this unusual space.

The piece you generate can be fiction, poetry, essay, art, photographs, or anything else that your creativity brings forth.

Write a post on your blog, and copy-paste the link in Comments. In case you are using a pingback, do check back to see if it has worked.

There was a world before COVID

We all remember how we lived

A life where restrictions were unheard of

We were free to come and go as pleased

This disease has turned all our notions upside down

New norms are created, old way condemned

But….

Are we adjusting to this new way of living

Has everyone accepted that this should be the way

Have we achieved ease of mind in the inevitable

Or we are at war with what is real, still wishing for dreams

Still……

Do we have a choice

Should we embrace this new life

Learn to live with restrictions

And find peace and joy however we can

And wait till this too shall pass?
