THE COVID SKY by Monalisa Parida

There is another sky 
Ever agitated and unfair 
And there is another sunshine 
Though it be darkness there. 

Our eyes are tired of watching the horizon 
For a sight as red as blood 
To appear out of nowhere. 

The only thing that compares this scene 
All the gifts are sent by God 
A poem, a picture, a melodic sound 
That inspires us to live 
Live more fully in this goldfish bowl.

And to move
At our heart's direction 
Into the flow of destiny. 

Monalisa Parida is from India, a student of English literature and, also, a poet.
