Coping with a crisis

Coping with a crisis

If possible,

we would emerge out of this pandemic by switching it off,

If possible,

we would fume less and smile more as the pandemic taught us that life is short,

Maybe this is just an aberration

for learning to cope with a crisis.

Happiness

Happiness

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.

White Sands

White Sands

The white sands were a magnet for tourists,

while activities like paragliding and scuba diving were fun, hardihood was key

They loved lazing on the beach

and getting scuttlebutt from friends,

When they were bored

they acted as if all the information was recondite

Blanket of Sunshine

Blanket of Sunshine

Having the penchant to excel despite rivalries all around

got rewarded with a trip of a lifetime,

Unable to handle the winter, he sensed that

this was the change he had dreamt about,

Drowning himself amidst a blanket of sunshine

he felt pure bliss.

Eavesdropping

Eavesdropping

Having noted her existence,

they planned to make their presence felt,

They tried to pry all her online activities,

without much success since she was miles ahead,

She already knew that eavesdropping was pointless,

and would simply lead to nothing but a dead end

Alone at the beach

Alone at the beach

Looking towards the horizon

with the sun setting in the background,

and hearing the sound of the waves hitting the shore

with him lying lazily on the beach,

he knew that he was a beach bum at heart

and could spend days alone there.

Gardening

Gardening

What began by planning the garden’s design,

moved on to the selection of the plants based on the soil type,

They were then gently placed next to each other,

labelled correctly and watered in the right amounts,

And voila, that’s how he started gardening.

Bramble

Bramble

Being early August, the first signs of light were there at 6,

Though it was difficult with the weather being hot and humid.

But this was the time to walk out and go brambling in the fields

And get back those fresh juicy berries home.

Blue

Blue skies

The skies were blue

And the grass was green,

The birds were chirping away

Amidst bright sunshine,

This was the time for getting some tan

Under the warm summer sun,

Sunny cloudless days followed by

Cool and breezy nights,

This was the perfect summer.

Drum

Drum

As the king entered

the palace, the sound of the

drums was the loudest.

He was suffering

but began to improve by

therapy with drums.

These drums were used for

any occasion from mourning

to coronations.

The drums symbolized

complete authority and

absolute power.
