Zero.

_____________

It’s been an hour
sitting on a chair
doing nothing.
I have cheered myself up
by making funny faces
in front of the mirror
but nothing has changed.

I remained dumb
and looking stupid
beside an electric fan
which looked more stupid than me
’cause it won’t work
even when my fingers
have hardly pressed its knob.

Though how much force
I pressed my pen on my paper
nothing has entered my mind
to start a sentence.
Zero.

So I made some deliberation
trying to exploit the limits
how far it can go
back to another time
of my childhood days.
But it went kaput.

Feeling the grip…

“As I opened my eyes this morning, I saw the first ray of sunshine pushing its way through the thin curtain of my room’s window. It was immaculately solemn as I felt the first wave of warmness when I turned off the electric fan and stood up from my bed.

The merry Christmas climate is making a headway through, however, it’s not as very “christmasy” as we still have to fight the greatest battle we’re facing, the pandemic. Two months to go before the nativity, the Yuletide season is moving closer in a turtle’s pace. We are dragging a heavy weight pulling ourselves away from this struggle. A lot of people are feeling the grip of the virus. It’s like our feet are being tied in a corner and let other people feed us to survive.

I just hope that the first ray of sunshine that made a dramatic rush into my room will be a sign of hope for a lot of people around the world to survive and pass this pandemic wall with optimism and confidence to rise again and begin on mounting other episodes of the remaining chapters of our lives. “
