Covid Poem 3 - Corona

by Judith Felsen, Ph.D.

Corona changed me
wracked my mind
wrenched out snarls
space for awareness
presence of that which exists
and that which can’t be changed
awareness now identity
apart from form and self
corona heightens essence
leaving fears and thoughts behind
a world perceived anew 
is not a fearful place but 
presence for a consciousness 
where peace presides 
in life and
never dies
