This Diwali

I shall put on my best dress and stay at home

we’ll have our family gatherings over the phone.

If we need to go out, we’ll visit the shop

pick up some veggies and get a short walk.

It’s two zero twenty – time to be with ourselves

covid-safe social distancing – let’s make sure it goes well.


I wrote this some months ago during the Diwali of 2020.
