A week in quarantine,
Then older daughter,
Then younger daughter.
Ups and downs like most illness,
Fever, congestion, medicines,
Feeling better, then worse, then better again.
Thankfully no one in mortal danger,
Fuzzy brain, muddled days, hard to let go of what should be for what is.
Books, articles, movies, cat videos, this and that, busy with bored.
Everyone seemingly on the mend, what timeline, who knows?
Ebb and flow, roll on, roll on.
