Covid strikes again.

Borders no longer open.

Nature bears her teeth.

No solace to be found here.

Christmas is cancelled for all.


This week I have written a Tanka for Ronovanwrite’s Weekly Haiku Challenge.

    Very nice verse; sad content, however. Everybody can identify with that!

      Maybe, I feel it is a wake up call. For us all to celebrate family and friends always. If we can ever get back to normal and enjoy the company of others we must celebrate and gather together as often as we can. Not wait for festivals . That said be safe be happy and have a wonderful Christmas with your boys. Sending love and light my dear friend. πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ
