And People Stayed Home by Kitty O’Meara

A poem gone viral was recently written by a retired teacher, Kitty O’Meara, from Madison, WI. It gives a new, refreshing perspective of Covid19. If you prefer to listen to it you can do that at

And people stayed home

and read books and listened

and rested and exercised
and made art and played

and learned new ways of being

and stopped

and listened deeper

someone meditated

someone prayed

someone danced

someone met their shadow

and people began to think differently

and people healed

and in the absence of people who lived in ignorant ways,

dangerous, meaningless and heartless,

even the earth began to heal

and when the danger ended

and people found each other

grieved for the dead people

and they made new choices

and dreamed of new visions

and created new ways of life

and healed the earth completely

just as they were healed themselves.
