Poem: Feeling Isolated

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"Feeling Isolated"

She begins feeling the isolation
of sheltering at home,
as she ponders the idea
of creating an imaginary friend.

Like Tom Hanks
in the movie cast away
talking to Wilson,
a hand made volleyball friend.

Maybe a kitty-cat
sitting on her lap
snuggling on the bed,
or a guard dog
taking her for walks
forcing her to exercise.

But right now
she’s sitting outside on the ground
with her tiny garden trowel,
digging up a flowerbed.

She’s determined with all her might
to succeed,
laughing out loud,
thinking to herself,
this would be easier
if she only had a shovel.
