COVID-19 - OUT OF THE ASHES

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.  

But how?

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.

And now?

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.  

Better.

Just like the Phoenix,

Born-again.
