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.
