Seems with hesitation;
Streaming like a waterfall viewed
Once upon a favorite vacation
Gathering in an uncontrollable sob
Gripping one's chest.
A sudden burst
A vehicle with faulty brakes.
Though feelings of isolation envelop us,
We are not alone.
Coupled with fear
Our routines such as they were-
Choices snatched away by a crafty pickpocket
We adapt somehow.
Thoughts of a marionette
Strings controlled by a faceless puppeteer
Arms, legs haphazardly maneuvered,
What would our ancestors have done?
Follow the guidelines
We see a radiant sun
A cerulean blue sky
The flitting butterflies
Birds in flight
Unaware of any upset in our world
There is hope.
