Six Feet Apart- a diamond etheree

For Kate’s Friday Fun – Social Distancing

Friday Fun – social distancing

I
woke up
bewildered,
baffled, perplexed
upon the world and
beyond, the love we knew
is to hug,  touch lovingly
lean in, hold and make eye contact
a little bit closer builds affection
fondness, attachment, and besottedness
love, in itself, is already tricky
actions, endearments, simplify it
how is love now? six feet apart?
like the Hollywood movie?
will meter stick be part
along with the mask
new normal fad
I love you, six
feet away
dear?

  1. totally weird but surely it can’t last forever … they are saying a vaccine is about a month away. Then a while before it’s available to the majority.

    Thanks for joining in with such a lovely contribution Mich!

    I call it physical distancing…not social distancing…because I have still been VERY social at 6 feet (and way further than 6 feet) away. 🙂 So grateful for being able to socialize from a distance. 🙂
    But I greatly, greatly, GREATLY long for the day when I can hug everyone…and I do mean everyone (!!!) again! Watch out, People!!! 😀
    How is your family doing?
    How are people doing after the storm?
    I’ve thought of them and prayed for them.
    (((HUGS))) 🙂

    1. I am so eager too to welcome the day when we can all hug and embrace each other and talk and gather without the fear of getting infected by the virus.
      We are doing well and have been helping in sending out donations for the typhoon victims.
      Thank you so much Carolyn for your loving thoughts always…☺☺☺
