Corona Collection: Corona Virus and Silence

Updated: May 20, 2020

Serap Brown - 19 March 2020


It all starts as a flu,

slows down life

and makes us realize

our human side.

“It is not enough,”

says Greta

to the leaders

of the European Union

“Not enough”

“Not enough”

for the measures to be taken,

by the leaders

of nations.

There comes

Corona Virus.

Now there is silence.

Silence…

Earth has its own

intelligence…

Kilometers of pipeline

planned to be built,

to carry oil,

extracted from soil.

Hundreds of cruise ships,

each holding thousands of passengers,

polluting water,

generating electricity

with oil,

extracted from soil.

Hands were shaken,

for the factories,

mines,

pipelines,

land,

to extract resources.

Ministers of Health,

now announce:

“No handshakes”

due to the virus.

Silence…

Earth has its own

intelligence…

“Not enough measures”,

says Greta,

who sailed between continents

to show her commitment

for the climate change.

Leaders

don’t hear,

don’t want to hear.

Now people are taking measures,

for corona virus.

Not for the climate change,

that melts glaciers.

Millions of liters

of oil

are now not needed.

Millions of people

are isolated.


Silence…

Earth has its own

intelligence…
