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.
 
ANNA KEIKO, CHINA
 
Translation Germain Droogenbroodt – Stanley Barkan
From “Loneliness in the Blood”
