Anteayer #NewNormal #A2Z

 Anteayer

(Spanish)  Meaning: The day before yesterday

-----------------------------------





New words, new fears
new facts

since when life refused to be
same ever again

Masks, sanitizers, distance
silence so good
but how much silence?

Time is now not a circle
a spiral with no end

What day is today?
Tomorrow?Yesterday?
The day before yesterday?

  1. Time, you see, travels not in circles / Like space, it expands and contracts / And always fills / Lives with indelible tracts. :)

  2. Profound. These times certainly allow for metacognition. Have you read the time keeper by Mitch Albom?

  3. It kind of scares me how real that 'spiral' line is... I really have lost concept of time. It's just icu duty, sleep, operation theater, sleep.

    Nothing like a real life.

  9. The last year has certainly messed with time - it seems to have passed so quickly and yet dragged at the same time! Well written.
