Staying happy is a choice to keep
the mind lucid and fresh.
Happiness is that feeling which one gets
seeing loved ones virtually as a rule during the pandemic.
One feels the happiest when its possible
to hug loved ones after months of lockdown.

So true. Beautifully penned!
Thanks Lucy :).
A timely post for this prompt. We’ve not seen our son and his family since December 29th….they live in North Carolina. I miss him terribly. Thank goodness for FaceTime but oh….when we have a vaccine and I can finally see him, I’ve warned him to beware….that first hug will be very very long!
Having not visited my loved ones since Feb 2020, I completely understand how you feel :). I guess this pandemic has taught us the importance of the simple things in life – relationships, being able to walk in fresh air, social interactions and more. Here’s hoping for better times to come.
I so agree! I’m a hugging aficionado and I do so miss the human touch!
While I may not completely be a hugging afficionado as such but I completely understand where your coming from. I guess this pandemic has made us realize how important human touch is, how important simple things in life are!
The pandemic has been incredibly hard on everyone. Here’s hoping for better days to come
Hope so too. Fingers crossed!
those last two lines are the raft which keep me going. beautiful
Poetry keeps me happy and my mind lucid and fresh, and I know that feeling every day when I Facetime with my daughter and grandson. I am so looking forward to a real hug!
We all are Kim! We all are. I feel so lucky that I could visit my parents in February. Like I am sure most of us I hadn’t ever imagined that the world could go under lockdown. And now after all these months, I do miss going home and meeting and hugging my loved ones.
Very well put, humans need contact, especially children. We are social creatures.
That’s so true! Hopefully there will be a time sooner rather than later where we can again meet and hug our loved ones like before Covid. Fingers crossed!
I am looking forward to lots of hugging and appreciating it on a new level someday.
Same here. Hopefully that day is closer than before.
Absolutely! This one resonates with all of us so well, Aseem.
Thank you for joining #FictionMonday. See you again this week I hope. 🙂
