InSight from Above

Ode to New York

New York of late is on its knees

Thru prayer with brothers and fear of disease

Though it never ceases to have sights

That distort your vision  

And reflection with such strength   despite

this time we are experiencing

Symbols of joy that mirror on our time here.

Whether a solar eclipse or a bronze sculpture affixed to

heritage building that evolves to anon

Sky or the space once a time we replace

to our own being with family that brings a new pace

of working or schooling of eating and gyming of zooming

no grooming and cooking and looming 

New York will survive as we glance way up high knowing

Natures at work

We will emerge and adapt with a creative surge

With the respect and resolve we are one with all.
