First day of summer

First day of summer

It had been a long hard winter with coronavirus wreaking havoc day after day. It was heartbreaking to see people struggling for their lives as the medical community began to buckle under the constant stream of patients. The dark clouds of uncertainty hung over everyone’s life.

But the vaccinations provided a silver lining amidst these dark clouds. And as the first day of summer began, these vaccinations were speeding ahead and began to show that there was light at the end of the tunnel. As the sun shone bright, the brightness in people’s lives also began to take shape.

  1. Yes, very true! I believe we are in the beginning of the end of the pandemic, hopefully. I got my first dose recently and I can’t wait to get my second one when it’s time. Brighter days will be ahead for sure, you said it wonderfully and as well delineated both the challenges from the pandemic and the hope that will soon arrive after such dark, trying times.

    • That’s great. We all should get vaccinated as soon as we get the chance and our able to. I truly believe we can finally see some light at the end of this dark tunnel that we have been in for more than a year.

  2. I am so pleased the situation is improving where you are, and that the dark skies are beginning to break open. Beautiful haiku of optimism.

    • Ahh that’s great. We all should do our bit and get vaccinated when we can. Together we can probably see the end of this nightmare.
