social distance #couplets

self isolation, keeping a social distance
allows space to look inside without resistance

life is so full of distractions
time to check our reactions

we all have ample, enough
no need to hoard more stuff

take a walk, read a book
get outside, take a look

life is far too short
for us to get caught

in panic and fear
for we are all dear

so find your inner peace
wondrous what it can release

use this opportunity
for this has brought us unity!

friday fun – distance


  1. Splendid sentiments, Kate, reaching all the way to us in North America. If your poetry retains all this grace up here, clear on the other side of the globe, I only can imagine the benefits enjoyed closer to you.

    I’d reckon Tahiti must be basking in a pretty epic emotional buzz right now. Of course, maybe it’s just all that vanilla.

    Right now, the empty shelves merely annoy, as I usually keep the pantry stocked. Besides, most culinary items I use are so obscure as to remain untouched, even after the mob rampages. Naturally, paper products, cleaning supplies, milk, eggs and bread are gone.

    Oh, and bananas too.


    Seems the herd developed an instant obsession for them too. Odd.

    • yes time for family and reflection! No idea why they feel a need to stock up for the end of the world … really you can only use so much toilet paper in a fortnight. Supermarkets realise it’s price gouging … take the essentials and sell them on at inflated prices. Greed is ugly …

  3. Life on Earth would be beautiful if we lived your ideals and principles. Meanwhile, even in the face of disasters, we can be selfish and greedy, so we take under ourselves and ourselves as much as possible. Lack of reason and selfishness. There is a lack of disinfectants in our hospitals, and the government is just planning to buy more than 280 new limousines to make them ride more comfortably.

  4. True words of being thankful and being to ourselves and reflecting on what is happening right now with our World. Why are people so scared and hoarding unnecessary things. All will be good and let us all pray for a World of Peace and Love.
