City Series – Anisha Saxena in Faridabad, We the Isolationists (367th Corona Diary)
Our corona diary.
[Text and photo by Anisha Saxena]
I close my eyes in self-isolation from corona… and I see madagascar periwinkles (sadabahar ke phool) glowing under the sultriness of the sun.
I feel a warm gush of air kissing my forehead from the rickety fan as if singing a lullaby.
I smell savory delights waiting to be consumed in gluttony.
I touch my embroidered white dress hanging loosely to my body as I gather my thoughts to be consumed in a rustic book of wisdom.
I sense pale walls in my empty room longing for company.
I wonder if a day shall arrive when the whole world starts to smile and that my friend will be worth my while.
