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
