Are you in isolation
Because of an unknown visitor
You had not welcomed?

Does it make you feel distanced
From human connection
So vital to your existence…

Have you used this interim
To reflect on ways of the world
You never glanced upon before…

Did you change the way you think
Or kept cursing the countries
For blatant and irresponsible behaviour…

Have you reached an understanding
With your inner self
And resolved to cherish the little niceties…

Like a new recliner in the lounge
You never bothered to slouch into

That unread book peering at you
From the forlorn shelf…

What is more
Did your heart now overflow
With gratitude
For those who were isolated outside

So you could remain warm and safe within…
