Last spring, when the pandemic was raging around the globe for the first time, a Facebook page called Haiku in the Time of Covid was formed by Danish poet Johannes S.H. Berg. Eventually, an anthology of haiku poetry from that page was published thanks to the hard work of another poet, Margaret Dornaus. This poem appeared in the anthology and I created this digital painting to post here.
