We are facing a terrible calamity. A real threat. A deadly virus that spreads at a frightening speed.
A dangerous weapon, with a silencer.
Let us pray that this nightmare, which takes lives without mercy or compassion will soon be ended.
To the lives that are spared, may it serve as introspection to rethink their attitudes.
Why envy, greed, hate? After that, may love and peace win and if this serves as comfort, let us think then that those who died made us open our eyes and their death was not in vain.
Of course, it wasn't fair. Death is not fair. But we cannot do anything for those who have died, but we can evaluate and rethink the way we live our lives.
Not to be in panic and precaution Is fundamental.
We must comply with safety standards and have faith that we will be able to overcome this enormous difficulty.
May Almighty God help us.
And since we have to avoid physical social contact, let us use technology to be close to at least those who love us and we love them. The internet has bad things, but it also has good things.
As with everything, it is necessary to know how to separate the wheat from the chaff.
I believe that a lot will change.
For now, no to kissing and shaking hands as a form of greeting.
Yes to namaste.

I was born in Portugal, in the centre of the country. I have two children. I’m retired. I worked in accountancy and I was Businesswoman of Restoration and Fashion. I am living in England since 2006. I am a co-author of 56 Anthologies of Poetry, Prose and Children's Stories and 7 solo books in Portuguese, translated to English. The dream of publishing solo became true. Reading, writing, sudoku, photography, gardening are some of the things I love most. I'm a lover of nature. I fight injustice, inequality, discrimination and violence in every way. I believe in love and peace, vehicles to make the world more balanced, more attractive, where everyone will live joyous and happy. Poetry is an amazing and wonderful force! And it is in this force that I seek the breath to move on and it gives me joy and serenity to live life with sweetness! Poetry is the soul and prolongs me in the dream and draws me closer to God! Poetry is the air I breathe! It is the sap that circulates in my veins and brings fire and passion to every corner of my being! Poetry is love! Poetry is life! Poetry is my bread and my stick!
