Something isn't right

Think the atmosphere caught COVID, the clouds dyed a sickly green,

 

Coffee brewing in the morning, severe storms brewing in the evening.

 

Empty stomach runneth over with butterflies, something just isn’t right,

 

Ordinary day shatters from the reflection, seven years of bad luck on the horizon.

This is quite an ominous read, Nik. I hope you're staying sane and safe out there.

It does feel like that sometimes. For me, it's like we've been living the same day over and over again. Same happenings, same setting, same thoughts. This is a strange time. Great work, Nik!

Very ominous in tone, MW. I've seen those skies when they really do look a sickly green. Loved the last line - very effective.

Sickly green skies are just as scary as those dark heavy storm clouds, actually probably a bit more scary because you know shit is going to go bad fast. Thanks for reading, Hully, appreciate it!
