In the Time of Pandemic

It is bleak

How can we see The positives You hear so many stories of  The healing of the natural world  Uplifting cacophonies The crash and bang of pots and pans Singing out of windows I am Teaching children in China to read Shakespeare Watching the sunrise  Re-devouring the pages of Harry Potter Playing cards for hours Teaching my Dad who resides in another time zone to use Zoom  Shopping for an elderly neighbour But then I remember I am also Suffocating in the airing cupboard of my anxiety I am Crippled by uncertainty Restless energy pumping through my veins  So alone at home

Now read from the bottom to the top
