Haiku – Better days ahead…

DSC06039

Monstrous gloom descends

anxiety engulfs life

pandemic looms large

 

gales of panic blow

amidst uncertain currents

cling steadfast to faith

 

sparkle of ray peeps

glorious sunshine embraces

global well being

 

Feeling low on hearing about so many positive cases around me. Trying to keep up a positive frame of mind, clinging on to hope, that things will improve and praying that this  pandemic will end. Soon the world will see a beautiful new dawn emerge behind the grey clouds of fear.

Stay safe and take care!

    Just the dark before the dawn. When I read this poem, even though it was about the pandemic, it stirred hope in me. You have this unique gift of endowing even a poem on darkness, with light. This is a unique talent. Excellent

    Really like the shift in perspective from danger to panic to hope. And hopefully the “global well being” is near.

    We always read, and exhort too, about keeping a positive frame of mind in difficult times, and there could be no time as testing as the present one to challenge our determination. Let’s chin up and put our faith to test. Take care, R!

        Radhika, reading or watching news scares us, and if you go out just to make your vehicle run for 5 minutes, outside crowd gives a complete different look as if nothing is wrong in the world.

        Very true Deeksha. People are seen in huge numbers without masks. Its as if they feel corona will never touch them. Its only a minute percentage of the population that follows and adheres to caution and social distancing.

    Hlo mam,
    I’m trying to write Haiku these days.

      Aww… thanks so much Dakshali for such lovely compliment. Initially I just kept the syllable count in mind. Once that was done, I thought how I could make it better. I guess it comes easily as we keep writing. All the best. Hope to read some of your haiku soon.
