The fence of ignorance

A hard frost, a layer of fog, and a brilliant sunrise 
Add an aura of mystery to our neighbor’s farm — 
And given that we moved next door 
Just as the pandemic began, 
The mystery persisted 
 Til a power failure forced communications. 
How glad we are now, 
 To know them as kind friends, 
The fence of ignorance between torn down. 
Too often, lack of communication 
 Turns strangers into estranged — 
A problem cured by reaching out 
 In openness and trust…
