Protect your community against COVID-19, A Poem by Ilma Saifi




And people stayed home

And read books and listened


And rested and exercised

And made art and played


And learned new ways of being

And stopped and listened deeper


Someone meditated, someone prayed, someone danced

Someone met their shadow


And people began to think differently

And people healed


And in the absence of people who lived in ignorant ways

Dangerous, meaningless and heartless


Even the earth began to heal

And when the danger ended


And people found each other

Grieved for the dead people


And they made new choices

And dreamed of new visions


And created new ways of life

And healed the earth completely


Just as they were healed themselves.

By: Kathleen O’Meara (1869)
