Cute poem, Lisa. You're fortunate to be free from this miserable virus scare. Most cases are related to travel. Block travel outside the country... that's the key. It's difficult because human beans are social. We need each other. Interaction. Hugs even. Hopping in the car for a carefree drive, like the young man in your picture. Great choice there, by the way! A bit of humor never hurts.
I especially like your last line,
"All roads lead to Home." ... Stay home. Stay safe.
Hugs,
Kimbob

I like the picture. It is cute...

Under the current pandemic, you are absolutely right, I have a license but I haven't driven for almost a year.

This poem is a very appropriate now.

Thank you for sharing.

    I tried to lighten up a serious topic with that silly photo.

Haha, what a fun poem that is sadly true for this time. Your picture is hilarious. Good job on the structure of the poem and its message. Before my brother got his license, he would drive Dad's Austin Healey back and forth in the backyard.
Thanks for the laugh.
Respectfully, Jan

    Gosh, i remember Austin Healeys!
    (I thought a serious topic about loss of freedom needed a silly photo to lighten it up.)

LisaMay,

This seems funny too...probably because of your photo choice.
It's a real deal issue though. You've expressed these crazy
realities very well here. The 5-7-5 form suits your thoughts
in a super way.

Yes, more lockdowns are in our future...glad to hear things
are going well where you are.

Anna

    I figured with a serious topic I'd need a touch of hilarity to lighten it.

Actually, this has a double meaning. All roads may lead to home literally when you're in lockdown but, metaphorically, all roads lead you back to wherever, or whomever, grounds you and is home for you in terms of memory and emotion. That's a lot to get into three lines and seventeen syllables, but you did it well, as always.

    In my case, home is where the art is.

This is a nicely written poem. You've got your license . Learned to drive. Nowhere to go. All roads lead to home. Very Cute photo to go with your words. Well
Done.

    That photo cracked me up when I saw it. I thought the serious poem could do with some humour.

Isn't that the way it happens? Finally get your license and can drive and then there isn't any place to go. All roads lead to home, for sure. Home is where you can go when you have no place else to be. Good job! I absolutely love the picture! ((((((((((((((((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))))))))))))

I find this piece funny. There are so many kids here in Oklahoma that are trying to get in to get their license. However, once they get them they have no where to go.

That picture is hilarious! Of course, I'd probably fit that car better. Thanks for sharing and so glad that New Zealand was so smart in protecting her citizens!

Nowhere to go is an understatement. Truly, here in Canada, we are still in lockdown in Ontario. Now more than ever, our minds are our guides. We really need to
think safe.

    You put it well when you say 'our minds are our guides'. Thinking safe and taking care of each other thoughtfully is so important.
