The Sweetness Of Togetherness

By  Dr.Muhsina.K.Ismail
No shopping, picnics or tours
Shopping malls are empty, beaches are deserted, exams are cancelled, schools are closed, work from home is encouraged, marriages are postponed, getogethers are dispersed,
Even group prayers are discouraged
My kid and me stayed at our flat
Took sanitizers with us whenever we went down
Operated lifts with tissues
Stood away from group discussions
We had an amazing time together
Playing games and having chats
She had doubts to be cleared
She had stories to be narrated
Our bond strengthened
Our flats didn't allow visitors
Especially those who are in quarantine
Surfaces are cleaned
Notices are displayed
Sanitizers and masks ran out of stock
We stayed together
To fight Corona
By staying apart!
The sweetness of togetherness…
