As do many other people, we feel and fear our
isolation from humanity. As much as I enjoy
walking, not many people are out. Those
who are wear masks (for the most part).
Expressions are lost, except for an eye roll.
I smile automatically, but no one can see it.
Our isolation keeps love and hugs for family
and friends at bay. The intense feelings
we hold are turning toward anger and frustration.
eagle is cared for
broken wings mended in Spring
yet misses his home
