A poetic expression of the current situation we are living in, and the hope and belief every night that the pandemic ends soon.
Every morning I wake up with a heart full of hope and belief,
“Life is back to normal and the last few days were a bad dream”
I gaze outside the window,
The sky looks magnificent draped in a saree, white and blue,
Behind the clouds, I spot the Moon whispering a sweet adieu.
The misty dewdrops look fresh, the green Earth serene,
Trees blossoming, the surroundings pristine.
But no morning walkers or school-going kids in sight,
Oh! The entire city is sleeping day and night.
Nobody is basking under the sun, benches lay empty in parks,
All I see is deserted roads and faces covered with masks.
Caged in my nest, this seems like a prolonged break,
Do I miss those busy mornings when I would rush to wake?
There is no running after the kids, no tiffins to pack,
No school picks and drop, no bags to check.
I crave strolling out in the fresh air and play outdoor games,
Smelling the cherry blossoms, back to those cobbled lanes.
Every evening, I try to catch a whiff of the spring blooms,
Sipping tea and peeping through the window of my room.
I hear birds chirping, flying high and melodiously sing,
How I envy them and wish I too had wings.
Humans are suffering, Nature is healing,
I wonder, through this pandemic, will we learn anything?
The virus will be gone soon, the chances are bleak,
Answers of many uncertainties and insecurities, I seek.
I try to cope up using various new techniques,
Still, it hits me hard at times and I shriek.
Every night before signing off to bed,
I make a silent wish to paint the town red.
Please end this pandemic soon, I pray to the Chief,
And doze off to sleep with a heart full of hope and belief.
