I have never seen the world change so rapidly!
was it a moment, an hour, a day?
certainly not love at first sight
nor will so easily come to pass away.
Plunged in this dilemma we count each step we take
window to window stalk the rising sun
sleep narrows to a halt and birds sleep late
governments crash and politics undone.
But in this vast pandemic while we weep
there comes a light within, our souls awake
our minds are filled with beauties long unseen
and things to do that never found their way
eat. sleep. drink. make art. poetry. science
make love and watch the stars bloom evening flowers
and wait forever learning how to pray
