Prompt: Write a poem for a particular occasion. Since there's been so much fear and gloom spreading lately, I thought it would be fun to write a cute and light-hearted piece about the day we're free again, try to manifest positivity and whatnot. Happy reading!
The day this pandemic is finally over
Will be cherished like a four-leafed clover
Jittery fingers from months of staying home
Will meet another’s skin and softly roam
Joking about how long it’s been since we last met
And thanking the universe for every moment we get
This past year’s been strange, I’ve changed a lot
Met parts of me I had always fought
I can hardly remember what life was like before
But one thing is for sure
As the sun heralds freedom on a grass-green lawn
I’m so glad COVID is finally gone.
