Love in the Time of Quarantine (a Sonnet)


Though times of isolation may be hard

While shut indoors with loneliness and grief

Let’s take this time to look into our hearts

For life itself is fleeting and so brief.


Please contemplate the blessings that you have

Think Love, dream Love, for all humanity

The glass is full, not empty at its half

We bless our health and our prosperity.


Our love alone will make this virus still

So keep your vision positive and sure

Let’s minimize its damage and its kill

And soon we will reclaim our earth as pure.

  5. Great positives here to compensate for the negatives – we wouldn’t be human if we only saw the latter!
