there is a door to life
but we must choose to open it
some prefer to wallow n worry
delay with drama
or just vegetate

with isolation experience
under our belt
we know just how we felt
got time to reflect
no need to be circumspect

we can keep chasing the dollar
or the ‘right’ image
or just step up and deliver
those aspects we prefer
less spending less waste

no need to do things in haste
priorities reviewed
others really do matter
time to curb idle chatter
less harm more harmony

  1. Lockdown gave us time for introspection and now it’s upto us wether we choose to mend our ways or just vegetate. The theme of this poem is so deep and relatable! You’ve woven the prompt perfectly, Bravo! 🙂

  2. That’s so true, Kate, that it’s our choice to open doors, take chances, which can be scary but is so invigorating and liberating. During the lockdown, doors have been closed and we have time to think. I’m afraid that those who ‘prefer to wallow n worry / delay with drama / or just vegetate, will be doing that, nothing will have changed for them and it won’t change when lockdown is over. Yes please, more harmony!

  3. YES!
    We hope everyone has learned something positive during this time. And we hope everyone is willing to hang onto the glaring facts concerning what is really essential, who is essential, and what our priorities should be.
    Excellent ponderful poem, Kate! 🙂 Thank helping us think! Thank you for inspiring us, encouraging us, helping us. 🙂
    (((HUGS))) 🙂

  4. Isolation has brought peace and time to enjoy the simple pleasures in life. I particulary like the last stanza
    no need to do things in haste
    priorities reviewed
    others really do matter
    time to curb idle chatter
    less harm more harmony
