City Series – Sangeeta Dayma in Bombay, We the Isolationists (321st Corona Diary)
Our corona diary.
[Text and photo by Sangeeta Dayma]
I close my eyes in self isolation from corona… and I see
A canvas hanging on the wall.
Which is blank, absolutely blank.
I feel the urge to paint it with my bare hands.
But, there’s something that’s pulling me away.
And right then,
Everything seems to be grey!
A wave of melancholy hits my head.
I can feel myself drowning into the words of the poetry I wrote sitting beneath my bed.
I see dark heavy clouds appearing above my head, trying to water the flower that’s already been dead.
That’s already been dead.
