already hermann hesse wrote

about the strange experience

to walk along in the fog

everything seems to be alone

one cannot see the next object

quite so today.

the fog of this corona-time

has masked the people

who stay separated and alone

stare into their cellular phones

and isolate themselves

thru’ virtual communication

in a virtual life

where reality and dream are fused

for the better or for the worst

and the poet wonders

if he could experience

still the love he has in himself

to share with a corresponding


a person who loves to touch.
