Corona Farewell

“A Corona Farewell”

“a bright hazing

in the frozen fog,

the pinwheel’s

last smoldering

til heavens break.

scatter wheel’s ashes

into the white-blue air,

hear the virus splinter

while trashing deep

in ice-cold chasm.

dark clouds atomize

sun shining our path,

trees and rivers sparkling

wakening what’s left

of a world of flames.

give birth to earth,

shatter the color

of pandemic dust,

healing white scars

on stalks of sundew.

release black smoke

into sharp-blue skies,

hark the brown leaves

and let’s again rise

like birds in fresh air…”
