Today the sun is shining in a different world

one where the busiest creatures

are the butterflies and the bees

the streets are quiet

and real people feel strange

alien, another land

some wear masks like they cannot speak

some cross the road and look away

some smile and give each other knowing looks

it feels like we have been given a glimpse into the past

a past that is now our future

I like to think that it is doing the world some good

I like to think it’s doing me some good

today we are connected by a digital force

one where strangers become familiar

and birdsong and poetry unite

Love Hope. - inspired by a line in Roisin Kelly's poem Easter ►
