I saw this picture of two lovers with face mask and it made me wonder if there’s any possibility of exacting love in times filled with watch words such as distance, face mask etc.

So far so good, the pandemic has succeeded in distancing many from their loved ones. Health agencies as well as the government of the world say we should avoid crowds, wash our hands, and use face masks.

They ask us to do this so we can protect ourselves and others. So I ask, in a time like this, where is the place of love? Can it survive the piercing tentacles of Covid-19?

Let’s talk about it.

Our poetry finds us
beautiful eyes holding hands
across vast pandemic sighs
such is our dear delight.

Sharing passionate dances
our words love to waltz
enrapturing happy
as we fall into delight.

Will you share your song
no matter where our
pillows dwell
nightfall’s frolic invites.

Keeping at text reach.
I know my angles better
Snapping shots for you.
Seeing your sly looks
On the screen in my palm
Flushes warm my cheeks.
And I miss the graze
Of your fingers
And the warmth of your breath
On my neck.
States between us.
I wait for the next text.

Gorgeous write; the longing emotions drip like tears onto our own.

Broken in discontent
pandemic spent
oh yea gentle love
seeks comfort where
promises are kind
in memories combined
say no more
but a few words
what lingers
are whispers
denied kisses
masked with wishes
special notes
of bedewed lips
a caress her
heart speaks.

How doth love commence amongst pandemics & sickness?
one needs connection to truly touch
not necessarily physical, but a touch of heart to reach another’s soul
to look within and heal woes…
to get to know another, takes communication, effort, & building trust a must
before lust

Our poetry finds us all holding hands across vast spaces. Such is our delight as we share our passionate dance. A waltz, a tango, or a samba; each finds us signatory to each others’ delight. We love when we play; the night beckons…
