I know it’s sad, and we should be thinking of positive things, and I do. I know there will be some who say I should focus on those that have survived Coronavirus. I do that, too.
But it’s not an “either-or” kind of thing. It’s a “both-and” kind of thing. How can one reflect on what’s positive without acknowledging what’s tragically negative?
True, this haiku certainly reflects on death. But it was prompted more by the emotional toll experienced by doctors and nurses caring for patients. Doctors like the one who posted the tweet that inspired my haiku:
God bless those that have been lost to this virus, their loved ones left behind, and the heroes who care for us all.
