Retrouvailles #NewNormal #A2Z

 

Retrouvailles 

Pronunciation (ruh-troov-eye) (French)

The happiness of meeting again after a long time



Oh how I miss

holding a hand 

skin on skin

the warmth of another beating heart

next to mine

these were regular

normal things

and now 

it is a desire

a privilege

a longing....

a hope.....

Quandry of Quarantine #NewNormal #A2Z

 

Quandry


(English) Dilemma 






Someone said 

What keeps something out 

also shuts you in 

a door can be a pathway 

it can also be a prison gate 

and then there was a new Q

Q as in Quarantine

the quandry of staying in 

and staying apart

The chasm that grows and fades

quandry to quandry

Parea #NewNormal #A2Z

Parea


(Greek) A group of friends who gather to share life experiences






It started as chats

random in abandon

and then 

in groups

we would listen 

to sorrow

to loss

 to loneliness

till one day all we had

a link, time and schedule

people in windows 

looking at other windows

no hope of a hug 

or a pat on the back 

or holding a hand 

only a face on a screen 

only a longing for  a Parea

in a parea we made!
