a haiku for the extroverts counting the seconds

Dead tired of my room
Hug-hungry, need REAL face time:
Explode these four walls!

a haiku for introverts emerging more slowly

Dreading to dwell with
open space. Bare hard faces;
Crowd-resilience lost…

a haiku for those still in quarantine

Shop online… so slow…
…today’s my next covid test?
Four walls, no change, sigh…

a haiku for essential workers

No end to the queues;
Eyes ache, feet sore, heart heavy,
Just breathe (mask up!)… breathe…

a haiku for students returning to class

Now we must wear masks?
– chewing gum, chatter unseen-
Bonus, let’s try it!

a haiku for teachers returning to class

Now they must wear masks?!
Tasks once hard now Herculean…
Can’t we stay online?

  1. Very clever. Even for an extrovert like myself I am dreading a full return to normal. But wait can things ever truly be normal again? Love your work from Lock downed Victoria!

      1. The same to you too! We are learning very quickly how much we took for granted in this country. Jump in the car or hop on an airplane. I can’t travel to Queensland for my Dad’s 80th this month. Will need to take a raincheck! xx
