A poem inspired by the pandemic:


An invisible virus, circling the globe,
Has spawned a dense cloud of fear,
Both for our safety, and for the health
Of those we hold so dear. 

The sidewalks and buildings, empty and lonely,
Echo in an eerie way.
Our familiar routines and social lives
All feel like they’re slipping away.

Shall we mourn the loss of the life we have known,
Weighed down by our dismay?
Or can we embrace, with hopeful hearts,
This adventure we face today?
