It’s been great to get out and about more now that the lockdown restrictions have been eased. This morning I had coffee in Wimborne with my friend Pauline and we sat outside chatting and observing the world go by. I can’t say it was sunny but we were grateful the rain held off, although my garden could do with the much forecast imminent downpour.
My poem, ‘Walking Out After the Pandemic’, appears in the August issue of ezine Snakeskin. I wrote it earlier in the summer when we were all beginning to venture out more, which was a relief, and something to enjoy. I also wanted my poem to express the disquiet that we may not get back to how things used to be any time soon. There are some excellent poems in Snakeskin 275. It’s well worth reading.
