COVID-19 - OUT OF THE ASHES
Here we are. At home. Some alone. Some with family.
Waiting. Walking. Sleeping. Reading. Praying.
Mask-covered faces frowning at those who enter our 6' space.
Signs line the streets: Sorry we're closed. We deliver. No parking. Beaches closed. Stay home. Stay safe.
Chalk colored hearts & messages paint our sidewalks: Relax. It will be okay. Just breathe.
But we're afraid to breathe.
Afraid? Yes. Sometimes. Most of the time.
We wait. We walk. We read. We pray.
Masked faces keeping our distance.
But we know one day
We will rise again.
Different. Yes. More cautious. Probably.
Our families. Our friends, Our country.
Just like the Phoenix,
