All the Wonders

Days Run Together


Days run together

And soon I don’t know ...

Is it Wednesday or Saturday?

We step through this disorienting, timelessness

of social distancing, quarantine, isolation.

I watch the news, increasingly grim,

And realize that we all will know someone

touched by a COVID-19 death.

And this grief overwhelms me,

Knowing that things will never be the same.

There will be suffering.

There is suffering. Right now.

Can we trust that humanity will get through this?

Like we got through the Black Death?

Like we got through the Great Wars?

Like we got through unimaginable disasters?

Tenacious human spirits hang on.

We adapt, we hope, we move, always, towards healing.
