Social distancing haiku. Week five.

Three sisters apart
Dealing with a world in fear
Damn COVID-19

In New Jersey…

Son cries for normal
Friends fall ill, hitting so close
Hope springs, curve plateaus

In Vancouver…

Daily video calls
Occupy an otherwise
Isolated life

In Iloilo…

Some defy orders
Total weekend lockdown called
Staff seek advance pay

Written April 17, 2020

About this poem: Intended three separate haiku from the perspective of each sister living in a different part of the world.
