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…

  1. Really good words and expressing how everyone is feeling. Life has been ground to a halt. Where I live lockdown has finished people cannot endure not being able to work and feed their families. Slowly the tourists are coming back and visiting a few flights are now being welcomed. I would welcome normality to return so people can have a life and this abnormality to end. Bless you

    1. Thank you so much for your appreciation… i am happy to hear that life is coming back to normalcy where you reside… In India, relaxations are provided in many areas as well and slowly things are coming back but still a long way to ‘get back to normal life”…

      Thanks a lot for stopping by and sharing your valuable views… 🙂
