Quarantine

A Poem By Damaris Ann // 8/12/2020

Quarantine
Masks and evasive glances
Huddled groups
And
Spaced out picnics
Long lines for household needs
Hurricanes
Then rainbows
Promises of hugs
Smiles through technology
And waves across the hall

~

Lazy days and lunch in bed
Blankets on the couch and
Romantic comedies
Popcorn and dark chocolate
Date nights in, and
Homemade steak
Drive-through milkshakes
Walks down empty city streets
Holding hands with
My love

~

Feeling sick
Uncertainty brewing
Queasiness and
Headaches all night
Crying because
I hate not knowing
But you are there with a hug
And sweet
Reassurance

~

Two blue lines
A happy squeal
Surprises thrown out the window
“I’m pregnant!”
I wept into his shoulder
Then
We loaded into the car, and
Went to buy a onesie
Quarantine or, no
Life moves forward
And joy
Is achievable

“The gospel alone is the power of God unto salvation.
Therefore, suffer, yes. Be misunderstood, yes. Be shamed, yes. But do not be ashamed. For the joy set before you, take up your cross, follow Jesus, be shamed and despise the shame!" -- John Piper

Introverts unite!
Separately!
From the comfort of your own homes!
