Once Upon a Time


Once upon a time, everything was normal.
Startling arrival of Corona, life became abnormal.
Once upon a time, we used to chill.
Startling arrival of Corona, fast moving life came to stand still.
Everyone is expecting to get back to normal life.
“Life is not willing to get back to normal,” it seems.
Enough precaution required for everyday survival.
Corona virus is the latest and biggest rival.
Once upon a time, roaming here and there was habit.
“Quarantine” is the general concept, due to COVID.
Once upon a time, weekend enjoyment was at peak.
Sudden arrival of Corona, enjoyment is now weak.
Let’s hope for that “Once upon a time” to come soon.
We all are waiting for that noon…
