layers of light
reveal the next
smattering of terrain
a silhouetted level
rising above
the earth
like waves
rolling ahead
towards the end
of all things

If you enjoyed this poem, please consider buying a copy of my chapbook, “Looking Outside the Window: Verses for Surviving Quarantine.” This poetry collection was written in response to the emerging Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic during the first days of quarantine. It caught various aspects of news media portrayals and the “new normal” of life during the health crisis. The collection covers some of the new technology that is being utilized as well as the rising fears of people as the uncertainty of the situation looms large.

“Looking Outside the Window: Verses for Surviving Quarantine” by Jason A. Muckley

“Looking Outside the Window” was a new poetry chapbook that materialized while working from home in self-quarantine during the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. I was in the middle of the NaPoWriMo challenge and found that much of my writing was revolving around the emerging health crisis here in the U.S. and around the world. The chapbook was meant to be an encouragement to those struggling with fear amidst crisis and the hope that someday soon things would improve.
