this sub-micro-organism

has paralyzed a planet

and in our standstill

and from our careful distances

we breathe the clearer air

practice patience and prudence

see each other in finer point

treat each other more gently

embrace from afar

rediscover forgotten nature

fauna wild and tame

feel again the soul-healing

of flowers

which are said to be

the smiles of the gods

as we live now

in corona

halo of light
