Calm Despite The Coronavirus Storm

Categories Lifestyle, Meditation

The Covid-19 pandemic
has brought untold havoc and misery,
resulting in numerous
human infections and deaths.

Unmistakable though, and palpable too
is the peace that Covid-19
has brought to Kenya,
and the world at large,
after the realization that
we are all in this together.

The peace emanates from the fact that
I can peacefully watch news again;
because the only bad
and disheartening news
comes from the effects of the virus
on the human population.

And not from hatred and hate speech,
which is especially brought on the masses
by the political class
and the self-appointed, equally annoying,
and majorly ugly political analysts and
their media conspirators.

That’s why I believe it when they say
that God has closed planet Earth for repairs.

That’s why I believe it when they say
that humanity has been brought back
to factory settings.

And the effects are soul-soothing;
it’s great to see how humanity
is going out of its way
to be there for one another,
in whichever way they can.

The effects are heart-calming;
It’s orgasmic to smell, and see
the world being wonderful again,
and people being beautiful,
and handsome again.
Everybody trying to make their world
a better place
despite the difficult circumstances.

The effects are mind-settling;
It’s great to see the effort
that humanity is putting together;
to learn how to love each other again;
instead of fussing, fighting,
cheating, biting, scandalizing and hating.

The effects are body-reassuring;
It’s great to see how humanity
is trying to give a helping hand.
It’s great to see
how creative humanity can be
when given a chance,
so that tomorrow,
everybody can live and be free;


I am an epic introvert, who quickly becomes an open book when I pen what’s in my significantly fertile mind; fertile as a result of bombardment by realities that are continuously captured by my inquisitive eyes, ears which are constantly rubbing the ground, through constant reading, and through dreaming too.

Writing provides an opportunity to ‘say’ what my unapologetic quiet mouth will not say; which not only soothes me, but also bequeaths to me a relief, a release, and a hope that the written words will change the world, even if only one person at a time.

And so should you seek, that’s where to find me; deeply tucked inside the blankets of reading, seeing, listening, dreaming, and then writing.
