No More Reading

And for those who just

Loved to read the faces

Of strangers they see

Or someone they know

This social distancing

Has certainly drained out

The very essence of their lives

Running alongside blood

In their veins and hearts

      While sitting on a bus on my home from office, during pre-covid19 era, I would like to just look at fellow passengers and used to wonder about how did their day went by today.
      No such scene now sadly, which prompted this.

      Very much indeed. Wonder how long before we do this reading once again.

    For those who are hard of hearing and rely on lip-reading, this time is extra isolating.

      Very much indeed. This time is certainly more hard for them than us.
