Poetry in a Pandemic: Moving forward in quarantine

The closeness we felt

In home cooked meals

The adventures we explored

In undusted books

I donned my finest blouse

To feel alive on zoom

Our comfort was found

In our four walls

We listened and the world spoke

In little scrolling screens

I watched the leaves turn

From brown to green to brown again

And each day from my window

The world still spun
