Bright Side

Connection and IsolationPoetry

It's hard finding joy in being stuck at home
These halls were something I liked to roam;
Until . . . I learned new things
Like baking
And painting.

Opportunities were
Brought from the inside.
From the Pandemic.
I thought being stuck at home was Fantastic.
