Christmas Bubbles (poem) and reflecting on last Christmas as we approach another one during a global pandemic!

Hello there you!

This time last year I wrote the following poem (was delighted when it was published on poetryandcovid.com) and it really shows how far we’ve come with vaccines, but also how we’re still in the thick of Covid with all these variants popping up; leaving humanity completely exhausted with it all. I wrote this when Government were sending out mixed messages in regards to Christmas household bubbles and how people had to cancel plans as lockdown was tightened last minute, leaving everyone upset, tired and confused.

It will be a similar Christmas this year, but one we hope we can enjoy a little better now we’re vaccinated; adding that protection against this awful virus.


Christmas Bubbles

A Covid Christmas beckons,
household Christmas Bubbles arranged.
I think, how daunting, outlandish
this situation is –

mixed messages thrown around,
pass the parcel as
Government dictates our festive period.
A solution mix of three bubbles.

A joyous festive time tarnished by
a silent venomous predator –
sweeping through global darkness,
yet sparks of light and hope arise
as a vaccine is born.

Mankind, they battle a respiratory war,
frontline staff gasping for air,
putting up a fight –
calamitous to humanity.

Christmas Bubbles. Will this cause further
cloud filled lockdowns, overwhelming
phenomenal, depleted health staff?
Inevitable.

Covid-19 prevails.
Christmas Bubbles like never before,
Twenty twenty –
I’ll be glad to close your opaque door.
I’ll be glad for the vaccine to soar.


How are “you” feeling about Christmas this year and if  vaccinated, do you feel that little bit more protected?

Have a beautiful day, thank you for stopping by and keep those spirits up. We are all in this together ❤
