The sound of coffee cups
And breakfast plates clinking
The birds in the morning
The hawk from yesterday
She is always by my side, these days,
My aumakua 💗
Walk with me shadow,
in the morning
light; my other companion,
as we listen to the piercing cry
of my soaring hawk
and the morning doves with flapping wings
I and you are not alone in this hot world
with Covid threatening
The news is deafening
but my morning walk is peaceful, bright, serene
There are ways to build worlds within worlds
to live inside eggs within eggs
creating safe spaces in these smaller circles
The rabbit hops across the street with grass in her mouth.
filling up with sun and love
When pausing a thought,
The dove flies away,
you know the sound
The bees buzz swelling from pine trees…
that kind of abundance.

The pandemic has completely changed our way of life. But when there is love, everything is compensated and it is appropriate to live as a couple.
Your poem is a reflection of that unexpected situation. I liked it a lot.
