“Daily Walk During Covid 19” by Laura Dennis


it is a beautiful blue sky spring day as I venture outside my house

bird song and the trickling of melting snow down the gutters and somewhere distant windchimes twirl in the breeze these sounds barely fill the silence

I remember a childhood dream of suddenly being alone everyone having vanished

upon waking anxiety and unease would be my companions yet I knew it was only a dream

today I listen for sounds of humans the echo of my footsteps on the sidewalk minutes go by

until finally a lone car passes me tires clicking now if only I could wake up
