Isolation in time of pandemic

I started this blog title in March but delayed posting it until now. It’s been nearly a year since isolation became a daily life.

Snowman voted, shhhh! 🤣

I was listening to a song called, “Write a story!” by Francesca Battistelli. Her music has drawn out a poem titled “Isolation”

in the quiet place, inside, alone

away from people

isolation to be safe and others safe

in this time of a

world wide pandemic!

Be safe family and friends!

Write your story on my heart!
