Covid-19: Poems from The Lockdown

The key phrases of NOW are

“social distancing” and “self-isolating”

 

BUT THIS DOES NOT HAVE TO MEAN

 

“social disintegration” and “solitary confinement”

 

NOW is a world of social media, of virtual interaction, of ideas shared through social and professional networking.

 

We can be together, we are in this together, this is one world

 

Poetry is the very soul of humanity, part of our core of expression, a mode of communication, socialize, civilization; it a way to show our love and empathy for our fellow human beings
