Pandemic Haiku by Pravat Kumar Padhy


Art by Bror Julius Olsson Nordfeldt

empty roads--

wind travels over     

the distance



early morning

the nurse replaces

a weathered flower



migrant labourers

the footprints hidden

in darkness



isolation ward--

stretched handprints

and faded screams



traffic square--

for days the signals

remain colourless
