1000 in a single day…

One thousand people
passed away in just one day
souls in flight and gone.

One thousand hearts stop
one thousand families cry
for just one more day.

Yet anti maskers
cry of lost freedoms, crowding
us closer to death.

Their loved ones will mourn
when they lie alone and dying
viruses don’t care.

Broken… a haiku

muscle memory

sense of who you are inside

liars, all of them.

 

new limitations

heartbreaking in their number

pull you down, down, down.

 

despair becomes you

inner screaming, outer smile

hide it from the world.

 

learn to be broken

make mosaics of your self

see beauty in cracks.

 

be your creator

build something new within you

make your broken whole.

 

new self emerges

introduce yourself proudly

you have survived.
