My front door haiku with the first photo of Gretchen and me for the new year. We’re still staying behind the closed front door.
by Veronica Hosking
Introvert stays home
Daily routine goes unchanged
Front door remains closed
Photo: The author (left) and her daughter Gretchen taking their first photo of 2020 in front of the family’s front door.
NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: Not only am I an introvert, I do not have a driver’s license because of Cerebral Palsy. My whole life I have enjoyed being a homebody; this new social distancing is the same old routine in my world.
