Long Island is not the place you want to be
When a pandemic outbreaks into the streets
Neighborhoods are split between those who listen to the CDC
And those who need a tragedy to take the guidelines seriously
Everyday is a guessing game of did Corona catch me today?
Lines outside clinics grew, nose swabs became a normal part of what we do
Masks became the latest fashion trend
Although there are people who refuse to buy them
More people are getting infected around me
When will people start to believe this isnโ€™t just some made up fantasy?
Covid affects everyone who has it differently
I just hope no one dies around me.
Don't want a Gucci
a smoochie
will do for me
well,
two or three snuggles
one or two kisses
and
a few cuddles
wouldn't go amiss.
This is letter number 37 today!
Quinn Nov 2020
Seconds, minutes, and hours tick by
Huddled within walls as the time flies
Some of us knit, or sing, or write
Others watch movies to get through the night

If you're searching for me, rush to the nook
You will find me there, on my lap rests a book
Who is counting the days, has it been three or four?
And now many must pass, until the virus is no more

At home is best, think of the others
I tell myself from under the covers
One book read, turned to five then six
Thrillers, romance, and sifi in the mix

And here I sit watching everything unwind
Why has the world turned it's back on being kind
Take a deep breath these hard times too will pass
Lock yourself in a room and enjoy a book while it lasts
Spending my days with a book in hand has helped this hard time go by a little faster. Stay kind. Be safe. And Happy Thanksgiving yall.

The  world sits in fear
we have to hold THE LORD near

tbough some drip a-tear
pray, uplift to show a-care

We see LIFE is very dear
as all other things- locked out in the rear

Cherish the moment you share
and with the rhythm of nature you hear
taking life forgranted we shan't longer dare

The bad times soon would goodbye wave
since restoration is what we crave

Earth seek to heal in many ways
and with the healing rays
The SUN of Justice shall rise
and shall we arise
from our seats
Holding life more than dear

#staySafe , keep the world safe!

While rain pours down on the rooftop,

I finally feel calm
and
it's terrifying
The unknown can be terrifying
Stay safe and don't forget to eat a cookie, you derseve it!

An angel without wings
Desires to care with a sparkling gaze
Sleepless nights, restless work
They hold strain and treat our pain
Aye, they are the true heroes
Wearing scrubs lacking capes

You are important, they might say.
You are beloved, they want you to stay.
They will comfort you and play.
They will stay with you all day.

But, this goes on only until you pay,
Until those green papers in your wallet lay,
Without them, No matter how much Love you spray.
It's a bitter truth, but, everyone will betray.

So, How much your importance weigh?
Times when people wished you Good day,
Good morning, Good night and Happy Birthday.
They just loved your money every day.
The bitter truth of this sweet Life.
Most of them around you love your money, Not you so beware!
Stay safe, Stay home, Read, Write and Love.
