Sunday Writing Prompt “Fortune Teller”


With danger and cacophony
With patience, corona will pass
That is, if we protect ourselves
Covering our mouth and nose, too

The call to be kind to nature
With danger and cacophony
We don’t have to covet too much
Get our priorities, be kind

Soon the colour of the sky
The sea can be all clean again
With danger and cacophony
Caress our soul, let there be peace

Back to basics, cotton and coal
And spending time with families
We get our priorities right
With danger and cacophony*
