The Amazing Times Post Covid-19 Pandemic

Categories Meditation, Tales From My Fertile Mind

I can feel something inside me say
that there shall be life
despite corona virus
even though it might be lived differently,
a new normal,
there shall definitely be life.

Oh yes, I believe in life after life;
oh yes, we shall eat life again,
with a big spoon,
even if this time the spoon
will most probably be different,
what they call,
the new normal,
which means;
doning a mask,
washing hands thousands of times,
ensuring that the closest
living human being
is at least two metres away.

Oh yes, I believe in life after life;
we shall enjoy
the flavour of life, again.

We shall savour
the texture of life, again.

We shall bite and chew
into the meat of life, again.

We shall taste the juices
that made life so sweet, again.

We shall inhale
the aromas of life, again;
and let it warm us from inside.

Life may be spicy and chilly now,
maybe even bitter, sour and unattractive;

We may be taking life
with a pinch of salt now;
But as all this unfolds
right in front of our very eyes,
as all this gets to pass,
let us not disappoint;

Let us prepare to experience
the coming good life.

Let us get out our big spoon ……,

and get ready to dig in;

because there will be life after life;
and it will be sweet like honey.

I am an epic introvert, who quickly becomes an open book when I pen what’s in my significantly fertile mind; fertile as a result of bombardment by realities that are continuously captured by my inquisitive eyes, ears which are constantly rubbing the ground, through constant reading, and through dreaming too.

Writing provides an opportunity to ‘say’ what my unapologetic quiet mouth will not say; which not only soothes me, but also bequeaths to me a relief, a release, and a hope that the written words will change the world, even if only one person at a time.

And so should you seek, that’s where to find me; deeply tucked inside the blankets of reading, seeing, listening, dreaming, and then writing.
