What’s Done Is Done


What’s done is done.

The unpredictable occurred: The coronavirus.

It’s a storm that could last quite long,

breaking the bloom of branches and blossoms.

Fear is everywhere,

Death is close to everyone.

It’s a spring of broken dreams—

dark clouds, sadness, tears.

The bell has struck the sky.

Haughty humans are falling

in the black hole they have dug.
