Fakeness of Factualty (COVID-19 (AUGUST CONTEST)

May Time replace the older ones many now live in
may be is borrowed by over plus 80

Covid 19 fear not the gift of birth
death is normal presently over 70
existence will not cease for humanity
once one has taken a long distant overview randomly

of a never ending horizon of traveling beyond space and time
the eternal wilderness where nothing but just two meet and greet

'nothingness and humility' continue to together breathe
what to live by in memory of existential reality

Corona is not the ultimate more will be born
many will grow only digital era will advance
one day someday even if not today
human will be limited to a minuscule digit
like a Morse code sent across millennia galaxies

no one will ever know who we all were
newer generations will laugh for years
till when they too to in eras become dears

fresher ones will arrive so why Corona fear
it’s not humans’ last tear millions more to come
one will have to bear
so humans don't worry don't despair

I like some of the lines a lot...

existence will not cease for humanity
once one has taken a long distant overview

existence will not cease for humanity
once one has taken a long distant overview

I submitted a piece to an English Poetry Journal, and the editor began a conversation about my submission. She did print my piece, after thinking it thru with me via email. One of the ithings she had to say to me was that the meter/inflection was different from American English to British English. I was wondering if you translated your piece from Romanian to English?

American English
to adjust spellings only
labour
to
labor
you know all humans
the same way do deliver
same kinda liver
but many a flexing lover

do you have a clue
how we all actually do

Ah same way
as you 'tis true
but
you still may have no clue
how to love brew
without white glue

you have flu
we have flue
only difference in spellings
would do

Jimi hendrix and Leonardo da Venci. Used more than a few three syllable words in it that the Editor had something to say about. It was more about how a line landed in the minds of a reader, used to British English, instead of American English. The discussion within the piece was about contextual places in Da Venci’s room of infinity in the Rome museum. The places that a room full of mirrors could take one, in one’s head....

There was a definite (unconscious on my part, actually) use of meter that the Editor was discussing with me, her point of view was that some of the words woukd not only sound different.,also would act differently in the British English readers mind.

Did you write your piece in Romanian?

Did you write your piece in Romanian?

Pay special attention to this virus is number 19 not number one. There have been 18 previous ones and none of them were met with false panic and the closing of the economy or even schools. Why do you think this one is treated differently? Perhaps politics........

If stan you know anything of numbers then 19 means INDESTRUCTIBILITY
Covid 19 has been selected
by humans to favour/favor nature
INDEFINITELY
Hope you will understand me
A scientist that I be
of HUMAN minds infallibility
hopefully Stan
kindness comes from ye only

Please review the above website’s information.

Among the Covid viruses, two previous virus’ were cause for alerted concern, MERS, and SARS. Both were huge in the medical world, and terrible. Only definitive, cooperative, containment controlled them, and there was significant loss of human life in the populations affected until containment was accomplished.

SARS originated in Wuhan, China, in 2003. It spread to 26 countries and caused 8000 deaths, before it was contained.

MERS originated in Saudi Arabia, is thought to have jumped from camels to humans, and 35% of patients sickened by it died.

Covid 19 is named after the year (2019), not because there were eighteen previous to it.

This is still a great subject to write about, in amongst all the death and awful circumstance.

all others around Covid 19
as you say 2019
solutions we all are grounding
hope results are soonly
equally
as astounding
