(For visually challenged writers, the image shows a green horizon, beyond which the mist veils a hill topped with strange rock formations)

 

she veiled her face

as she walks herself

to the misty mountain

with the hope of

finding solace

and solitude

for life wasn’t

the same the day

she was confirmed

to have been infected

by the deadly and contagious

COVID 19

and 

even after a medical certificate

has been released to say

she is free of the virus

neighbors and friends

and sadly even relatives

still regard her

as a bearer of the

contagious 

virus

so

the mountain

might be just

her home 

for now

and who knows

forever

 

Dedicated to all covid 19 survivors who are experiencing discrimination.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.
