Corona Poem 5 - Corona Love/Fear

By Judith Felsen, Ph.D.

Corona love woke me from a dream 
I dreamt a while ago
now becoming real
anticipation of a world to be
incapable of life
Corona love, a nightmare
prophesy, projection of our ills 
lover’s warning
of impending truth 
reminding that existence is of one
virus,  people
world, one life 

Corona intervention cries for
waking up, releasing, letting go
11th plague 
this scourge demands 
no lamb’s blood,
rather our compassion 
smeared on every heart
forgiveness, every mind
connection, every being
that our doorposts bear
the mark of our awakening…

we lost our senses
now returned
we enter Sinai with atonement’s gold
making our commitments new commandments 
quarantine well spent
saving lives 
not for another golden calf 
but global grace instead

Partnered with Corona, our conscious bringing lover
we are one planet now
awakened to our unity 
where all is love.
