Tago por Virusoj; A Day for Viruses

All coincidences with real people and events are unintentional. These verses are just poetry, not documentaries. Please don’t take anything literally but metaphorical. I am not the same person as the narrator of the poems like the guitarist is not the tune that comes out from his guitar with the help of his fingers.

Tago por Virusoj

Kial ne tago por virusoj
ĉar ili estas kiel ni:
mortigante ĉiun vivanton
ili tuŝas.

A Day for Viruses

Why there is not a day for viruses
As they are like us:
Killing every living creature
They touch.

A Bird in the Nest

A bird in the nest
Waiting for the end
Of its kind.
People are
Already close.

    The first picture looks like a mandala. I was drawn to it. I think the red tones are very beautiful. Humans project their view of things onto the virus. Man says a virus wants to kill. A virus seeks a host. It’s evolution.

    There is no day for the virus, as it is boring us every day.

      Thank you for your comment and encouraging words regarding the article itself.
      I don’t know why you conclude I have a bad winter.
      Have a lovely and reward week ahead ❤


  10. Perhaps it was the dystopian view you presented – not just once, but twice, which I thought reflected your mood and I conjectured on the things which might affect your mood. There are, after all, many who do their best to protect the environment. It’s a cup half full or half empty depending on your frame of mind and weather..

      Thank you for your comment.
      Your comment explained why you thought I might have a bad winter. However, I can say that my state of mind has nothing to do with the core of the poems. However, I am not beginning to explain what I am trying to say with these poems. The readers have the right to understand things in the way they choose.
      Take care and have inspirational days with paintings 🙂

    I find it intriguing
    With our brain/education and all
    Virus keep up
    As a tough competition
    For human 🙂

      I also think it’s unique that viruses that do not have brains or modern technology compete equally. Sadly, we are also on the same level in how little we respect life around us. This shortcoming in us A Day for Viruses poem try to point out 🙂
