Spring break started today,
School’s been out nearly a month already,
The green is taking over the brown outback
And the renewal of everything
Is in full swing, now.

Except for, well, you know.

Reports say the planet is vibrating less,
Fish are back to the canals,
Whales are seen by the shore,
Goats are coming down from the mountains,
Pollution is dissipating,

People are staying inside…

Are viruses Mother Nature’s fail-safe button?
Does she see the calamities we cause
And then let something out
To remind us that we are caretakers?
The realists are yawning, right now.

Still, I wonder.
