Social distancing haiku. Week seven.

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

In New Jersey…

Suicide claims hero
Feel pain, but puppy brings joy
To virtual birthday

In Vancouver…

Jordan on Netfix
Better distraction versus
Mass shootings last week

In Iloilo…

Planning for return
Food and employee safety
Requires plastic shields

Written May 1, 2020

Original sketch by my friend Jon Franco. Like a lot of folks these days, he’s been rediscovering his talents and love of drawing. All this boldness and creativity reemerging is one bright light in the midst of this pandemic.

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