Lockdown
by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

The world came together as one —
Or rather, acted as one, like in the
Days of Noah, in the first lockdown
Following the first pandemic of flooding.

There was the smell of a virus.
Thick and heavy, it held the lungs hostage.
There was a confraternal mass, and between heaven and hell
An iota of odour, bigger than the sinking sun, hung in the stratus

Hey Quarantine
by Rahul Ranaganath

What seems to be so special
about these days?
The mornings are so long,
and the nights are so weak.
A matter of few days,we talk about
and deep down there’s no end.
There are different kinds of people
Some grabbed the books for pleasure,
where a few learnt how to cook,
Most of them are fuckin busy with

The Night New York Slept
by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

It was one solemn, long night,
Tenebrous with the astuteness of perfidy,
And multiple hours before the break of an
Impatient dawn.
Lampposts froze through the pergola of winter.
Limp from exposure to unprintable tales of orgies,
And their lights, hidden by icicles of pelted snow,
They fell face-down on the wayward paths of Central Park.
Manhattan was hung on the tattered frescoes of
Horror, masked with the silence of confrontations.

Lockdown in India
by Srinal .

Oh! what lockdown, Noooooo....tell me this is a nightmare.
This was the reaction of every indian citizen after hearing about lockdown due to corona.
Nobody knew that at 8:00pm, on 23th March they will get to hear something like this, about which they didn't have thought ever.
Some people started cursing the "virus", some the government and nearly 1%called it a great decision to save mankind.
No school , no office, no travelling just stay indoors said the government. The citizens decided to obey the instructions with a very heavy heart.
Now, everything had changed people who had declared themselves as the most busy persons in the world were sitting idle at home with there family.
Among all the citizens the most happiest were the school going children because for them it was like a dream true cause lockdown meant no school and tution.
Everything had suddenly changed . At times it felt like the enitre nation had come to a standstill.
Economy has collapsed, in this thinking life is there then there is everything.It bought a time of crisis for the entire nation.
But still we joined hands and the enitre nation stood as one to fight covid cause " United we stand divided we fall".

दोस्तों का साथ और कोरोना
by akhlesh tomar

जिंदगी का सफर और फिर दोस्तों का साथ हो
हर शाम मस्त और सुबह जैसे नई सौगात हो
बाहर से बड़ी बड़ी बातें, खाली इनके जज्बात हैं
असली दोस्त वही है जो मुसीबत में खड़े साथ हैं

इंसान ही असली माया है बाकी सब मोह माया है
हर पल जिओ भरपूर,कल देख कौन आया है
बहुत कुछ सिखा गया ये वायरस & lockdown हमें
सिटी के mall से ज्यादा ठंडी पीपल की छाया है
और जो दौड़ रहे थे पैसे के पीछे अपनी आंखे मीचे

The Sound of Silence
by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

Splashing down liquid voices,
a troubled peace of silence enveloped
the fragile land.

Here comes Queen Lockdown with her septic flowers.
The church bells chime mutely,
with refined silence and hypnotic horror.
Funerals and weddings merged like companies,
Counting on numbers frugally.

Samsara Raga
by Manomay Shubham

Yes, earlier my life was different,
I was prolific, my friend,
but now, when morn's light enters,
I wake up glum and blue,
facing my pet-peeves
dithering what to do?

When I sit at the table, my back hurts and stings
the slow internet during the online classes makes me vexed and chagrined
every day I do the homework, practice the dreary maths
