How do I feel?
I woke up this morning with these words flitting around in my head, so I sat down to try to write them out.
We are living in strange times and the main problems are, we don’t know how long this will go on for or how bad it will get.
As I sit in my backyard in the glorious autumnal sunshine, I have to remind myself from time to time, that life has changed.
I often think I’ve been dreaming and get a shock when I remember what’s going on out there. I know I am fortunate to live where I live but I worry endlessly about everyone, especially my family and friends, scattered across Australia and the rest of the world.
How do I feel in my little cocoon?
I feel like I’m in a cocoon Awaiting to emerge One day soon As a beautiful butterfly. I’m staying at home Practising physical distancing And writing a poem While watching life from afar. It seems surreal Real life or a science fiction story The whole thing unreal But unfortunately, it’s all too true. My cocoon feels safe Familiar and comfortable There’s not much I crave Far away from the encroaching virus. How can I just sit and read Enjoying the autumnal sunshine While out there a virus breeds Threatening our very way of life? I’m in two minds if I’m honest Time spent with people Is very much missed But my cocoon is ever so comforting. Will I emerge one day Or will I enjoy this time And decide to stay Wrapped in my little cocoon? © Debbie Harris - March 25 2020
I am indeed living in a cocoon.
One thing is certain, our lifestyle is changing rapidly.
And yet life goes on. It has to.
How are you feeling?
Do my words resonate with you at all, or is your experience completely different to mine?
It’s a strange time for everyone.
Leave me a message and I promise I’ll get back to you.
We’re all in this together.
