Lilacs showered upon me A love I didn't appreciate Sunlight bouncing off windows Hurt to be neglected Now, taunt my very being An animal caged in the zoo Mocked by wandering birds But in this desperate boredom, I'm learning to find Symphony in their chirps. Walls are crashing down That shielded me with normalcy In this chaotic solitude, I'm finding peace In the little things. Finding love In being alone. Finding me Slowly.
Hey there! Everyone’s struggling with quarantine and the news which becomes more tragic by the passing day.
This poem is in response to a quote.
“Barn’s burnt down, now I can see the moon.”Mizuta Masahide
It is a prompt by Mish from the dVerse. She encourages us to find our moon behind the burnt barn. She urges us to find a revelation, a new bright perspective that was hidden because of our daily routines. Something that this world crisis made us realize. With so many affected by COVID-19 and so many affected by quarantine, I think we’ve all begun to appreciate the things that we didn’t before. That’s what I wrote about today. Because, when we don’t find what we want, we tend to appreciate the things that we didn’t notice before.
