Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 367 NOTE and Send.

This is part of Ronovanwrite’s Weekly Haiku Challenge.

a note of caution
don’t send the wrong message out
rona has not gone
hiding in the shadows still
silent and ready to pounce.

My reaction to today’s easing of restrictions, with numbers rising I feeling it’s at best foolhardy at worst total madness.

Stay safe, stay well. πŸ’œ

    All quite confusing. I still wear a mask despite being vaccinated but I’m often looked at as if I have lost my mind. Either that or people assume I haven’t got the shot.

    A great poem. I suppose it depends what figures the government has its eye on. If its infections, they are very high in the UK, but your death rate is pretty low. Did everything open up today as planned?

      Apparently but I won’t be going near anytime soon. Our hospitals are filling up with Covid cases, and our intensive care units are full not only with Covid but other things too. Our local hospitals are opening up their Covid wards. Life saving treatment and operations are on hold because it’s so busy here! It’s not good Robbie. I do hope things are better with you and you are all safe. πŸ’œ

        I did wonder what was actually happening when I looked at the rising case numbers, Willow. It is frightening if the hospitals are full. When my dad was diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism a few weeks ago, he should have been hospitalised and treated in ICU but he couldn’t be admitted because the hospitals were full of covid patients. Even if there was a bed, it would be to dangerous to have him in hospital among so much covid. It is a terrible tragedy for people who become ill from other things.

        Robbie it is a nightmare and such a worry for you and your Dad. I do hope he is now on the mend.
        Here this are not good at all, Boris is ploughing on with his own agenda with no thought for what’s really happening. Hospitals filling up, infections soaring. There may be less fatalities but there are more people ill.
        This is the worst time to lift restrictions! Stay safe πŸ’œ

        Dad is doing better and sees the doctor again next week. We have been very blessed. Getting dad into see this cardiologist saved his life. I am sorry to know that the virus is so bad in the UK.

    Just because the restrictions are being relaxed doesn’t mean that we have to lower our guard. Great message, Willow

    Yes. Too many think that being vaccinated means it’s the end. Unfortunately, it is not. Too many are still not vaccinated and they are the ones being hit the hardest by the variant.

    Your poem speaks quite aptly to our unfortunate reality. It’s crazy on my side of the pond too. Delta variant spiking fast and furious. Masked people at grocery store, about 50/50.
