Post Pandemic
 
Hunkered down at home in India,
I saw a glimpse of the future,
the post pandemic future.
 
Restrictions are now being eased, as the outbreak recedes,
People are moving on the streets,
as the patients are discharged with corona negative receipts.
 
United by compassion, motivated by immunization,
the world has moved ahead,
crossing the barriers of class, caste and filtered faith.
 
Adjusting to a new reality, I looked up at the green Gulmohar and Bakul trees.
Waddling across a four lane highway,
I saw children enjoying their chocolate stout sundae.
 
With the carbon emissions down,
Every morning I get up to see the Himalayas crown.
 
Hunkered down at home in India,
I saw a glimpse of the future,
the post pandemic future.
