Corona Seasons: haiku and senryu sequence (since 2020)

 quarantine flowers
 —contactless delivery—
 memento mori

 walks down banned beaches
 shoals of multicoloured masks—
 ships flying ensigns

 yarrow and ragweed
 in seed clawing through asphalt—
 the rush-hour silence

 advent calendars
 open identical days—
 frost-etched windowpane      

 the months of absence
 skin touched through the haze of screens—
 hope bruised like blossom
