Home Isolation

Home Isolation


There is no quiet in home isolation
In our home, a small nation

    Runs

Around, Words and feet
We are running out of meat

    Now

Fast words, loud feet
Loud words, fast feet

    More

Then seven
Now fourteen, good heavens

    Up above

The rice, on the pantry shelf
I now have lots of help

    To reach

The magnificent seven beings
In our home I am seeing

    Seven

Releasing words
So many they cannot all be heard

    At once

I ask myself “How many words can an ear eat?”
Until it’s full, what capacity does it meet?

    In Measure

How does a person know,
If they have had an Ear full?

    Of News

Next week will be a spike of cases
Globally I see many faces

    Frightened

Groups of people, if I attend
Will it be my end

    Two

People close to the family died
Can’t go to funeral to say goodbye

    You

Sent the young adults to the store
Is that safe? You can’t handle hearing anymore

    Death

Spread has not yet peaked
How many will it be next week

    End

The pandemonium, limited food on the shelf
Focus on others, not wealth

    Or else

This will never end
Call a family member or friend

    Now

Check in, help them out
The sick and the elderly – shout out

    Loud

Collaborate and share
Make all of us aware.

    Of Weapons

Our Hands, to be cleaned often
By doing so will soften

    Impact

Of being home
Certainly not alone

    By myself

Reflecting on breath
On thankfulness not wealth

    Of a nation

United we must be
Together we must see

    People

Compassionate, holistic
Putting others first

    Place

Yourself on hold
Watch from home as things unfold

    Across the world

Health the great equalizer
Let’s hope this makes us all wiser

    To all people

Making a difference
In a role of offence or defense

    THANK YOU

Function of the Hand

COVID-19 – Collaborating a Contagion

feet, many, isolation, meat
