The car stops at the corner,
The street is empty and bare,
No need to wonder at the barren roads,
It’s the new normal we all have to live by,
It’s another way of life we have to get used to,
For we have made our hearts concrete just as the city.
The car travels on
Passing fields green with vital fife,
Rolling rivers team with brimming new life,
Mountains purple with shadows of passing clouds,
Birds and beasts roaming the now newly reviving wilds.
Denuded nature is returning to its pristine state and restful fullness.

Yes, there is the prospect on the other side of this, of a world in which we relate to nature, and to each other, differently
Thank you 🙏🙏🙏
Remember that God sent Judah into captivity to give the land rest it didn’t get – 70 years of captivity, one for every Sabbath year they had missed. God did it for the land to recover. Then why not now!
It seems Nature got a reprieve from destructive humans during the quarantine. Have we learned anything?
I hope we get the lesson quickly and permanently!!!

I think the Corona is going to hang around until we finally get the lesson. Love the poetic take on the prompt.
Nature doesn’t take long to recover once it’s left to its own deivces.
Thank you 🙏🙏🙏
