COVID Haiku Too

Embraces with words,
Smiles behind our masks—
“Yes, we’re open now!”

Their visits were brief.
Patrons here with us, sharing
Their long alone times.

Only a few days–
Laughter, questions, books and more,
Filled our days with fun.

Now rooms are still again—
No masked grins, no distanced hugs—
Quiet like the forest.

All that remains are
Candy wrappers and brief notes
Of those who were here.

Yes, we’ll open again,
With smiles anew, welcomed back—
“We’re still here for you!”
