Shadorma on OMICRON

Omicron.
From where did it come?
From nature,
mutating.
Is there recourse against it?
Yes, inside ourselves.

Omicron.
Nature’s dire warning
to notice
all the things
that are really important.
When will we listen?

Omicron.
Bellowing out loud
the nature
of our harm
to the earth that sustains us
Begging us to hear.

Omicron.
A more deadly strain.
Each of its
mutations
carries a stronger warning
to love each other.

Omicron.
It is a blessing,
telling us
that hope comes
when we understand its call:
ONLY CORRECTION.
