HAIKU IN THE TIME OF TERROR  [Novel Coronavirus Epidemic 2020]

It’s an endless night
And there seems to be no dawn
While the world’s in pain.
*******


Let’s gather around
We suff’ring humanity
And keep hope alive.
*******


Despite tragedies
We plod along life’s highways
Heading safely home.
*******


The nightmare persists
As the shrouded nemesis
Stalks its feeble prey.
*******


Just a faint flicker
Will melt the brooding terror
Of a daunted soul.
*******

 


Let’s gather our strength
And cross the rickety bridge
Over the abyss.
