These are interesting times

We have virtual coffee dates

Zoom get togethers

And communicate with others

From the comfort of our homes

 

These are interesting times

Empty streets

Stores that had to close

Even hairdressers!

I’d say this is an essential service

Especially for the ladies

 

These are interesting times

Health care workers

Are putting themselves in danger

To save others’ lives

 

These are interesting times

Families can spend more time together

And we are forced to slow down

 

These are interesting times

Resilience is needed

Hope is essential

Patience is necessary

And creativity is helpful

 

These are interesting times

Kind words and deeds go a long way

Prayer and meditation provide a balm

Nature is still our playground

 

These are interesting times

We can see that the world has become

A global village

Cooperation is needed

And we each need to do our part

Interdependence

Dangerous times

Critical times 

Yet snow lays so peacefully 

On the tree branches and the hills here

 

Fire burning in other lands

People fleeing from danger

Yet the trees stand so majestically 

In the landscape in front of me

 

Dishonesty and greed abound

Yet darkness starts to recede here

And daylight is on its way

 

Contrast 

Yet interdependence 

Our world is a global village now

Each part hurting affects the others

Have we learned this lesson yet?
