in time of sickness ~ tanka

in time of sickness
neighbors become more distant
fearful of disease
care given to those in need
while staying ever mindful

This tanka is my response to Poetics: Now I Can See…,
from Mish at dVerse Poets Pub.

    • Thank you, Christine. This definitely will cause some rethinking on out-sourcing and supply chains. For instance, 75% of the surgical gloves are produced in Malaysia, and that country has curtailed production by 50% to protect product & employees, while focusing on protecting its own in-country supply.

  1. I think it is the most uniquely difficult experience. We are used to reaching out to help others in any disasters, crisis, or even illness. With this situation, we can only do it with technology….a cold way but our only way.
