Saturday Night No Fever (COVID No 2 )

The spikes in my inner skin
today do sting
like sharply pointed
nine pins

the week end is going to be dry
Saturday and Sundays
all everything closed
no surprise

what to try

where in the garbage
can we ourselves repose
early morning we all rose

the sun keen to peep in
but scratching inside doors
kept me sighing

the clouds requested the sun
to wait
the poet now sleeps
I hear the silence

get up straight
pull the curtains

come my sun

It's a changing world isn't?
It's nice though, to always be able to feel the sun, or catch a drop of rain... at least those things seem normal

Hope you recovered swiftly.

happy you read it
No one had the time
fear of the virus may be

you in wanting to get out and do something; but fear of the Covid 19 is keeping everyone down and inside. It will not be too much longer, if everyone gets their vaccinations and stays safe. Nothing to do and all day to do it! It sounds like a good thing, but you can always get too much of a good thing. ~ Good vibes here. ~ Geez.

how your country is dealing with giving out the vaccinations. Here in our country, if you are as old as you are, you would have already gotten your shot. Good luck to you. ~ Geez.
