behind my mask

 appreciation breathes in

a colour


not seen

in my garden


the warm of sunlight

caressing my face

as i walk


in this new normal phase

lockdown now a memory


at the street vendor

things we took for granted

buying fruit


celebrating a new day with

huge helpings of hope stirred in

call to nighttime
the sweet sleep under moonlight
creatures all

 i lay in soft night
ahem its slumber time
i close my eyes 

hidden from stars
i dream of her with the pink tail
and pretty jade eyes
