Shadorma 10 – Roots

Roots

Things are not
getting any better.
Covid cases are
rising, as
are hospital
admissions
followed by more deaths.

The only place
I feel safe is home.
Now it is
like prison,
I only go out to shop for the essentials.

Online I
live another life.
Zoom meetings
are good but
I am "zoomed out" by
too many...
I need something new.

But what can
I do? I can't sing,
I can't dance.
Maybe I could
learn to play a bodhrán drum?
Connect to my roots?

Disturbing the
neighbours, no not me.
It's music
reels, hornpipes,
slip jigs and the mother of
all jigs, Irish music.
