Pandemic Poem #31

What are you dreaming about and loving fiercely today?

(Reading tip: if you are reading this on your phone screen, turning the screen sideways will result in a correct placement of each line; otherwise, they are broken up in unusual and not especially poetic fashion.)

 

Untitled

Did you hear that sigh?
That was my soul talking to yours,
Saying: I know, right? Here we are,
Another week in quarantine–
What would you like to dream,
To love fiercely today?
