Another Found Poem – The Memory of a Pandemic by Melba Christie

Below are the attributions that inspired my found poem. Stay safe.

 

The memory haunts sometimes

like a ferris wheel

out of control.

But we hold

onto it.

Her brush ignites

her creative spirit

and a Pandemic painting emerges

on a forgotten canvas.

It becomes a message for the future generations

when they learn

his LIES and TREACHERY

created so much uncertainty

That even the lightkeeper

did not know when to shine on.

No one knew

when and where shadows hid

so many mourners and the sad dead.

Who will know for sure

if there

is a reckoning coming.

Deep inside each heart the true answer dwells

and the last tear will be shed.
