“The Hidden Blessing

The L.A. skies, pristine and blue, have lost the smog that dimmed the view.

Sleek dolphins frolic in canals in Venice, one of the locales,

where nature has reclaimed her state.

Families stay at home and read, and children meet the dads they need.

The hurried stress of business gone, a settled peace begins to dawn.

The upper air receives much less of fumes that make a fouling mess.

The nurse and clerk have shone as heroes. Who cares their checks show fewer zeroes?

There is a hidden blessing here, a cause for joy behind the fear.

Humanity, stood still, now sees the peace that lies behind disease.
