Ever since the Pandemic started, many artists were inspired and used this inspiration in different ways. Some artists did Graffiti and other types of urban art as I mentioned in other articles. But now let’s take a look at how poetry Authors were inspired by it. 


1.Coronavirus Haiku



I am lonely now because

I am at home



Friends to see in the morning

No, I can’t no more



I will try to stay strong now

I know I can fight



I am stuck inside for now

I want to get out



But for now, I will fight you.

I wish you were gone


This Haiku was written by Amy Richman. It is a very beautiful writing and portrays in a precise manner How many people are feeling regarding the situation. It shows how you can be hard to adjust to these hard times but we have to keep trying to get the best of it.


  1. Pandemic


What if you thought of it

as the Jews consider the Sabbath—

the most sacred of times?

Cease from travel.

Cease from buying and selling.

Give up, just for now,

on trying to make the world

different than it is.

Sing. Pray. Touch only those

to whom you commit your life.

Center down.


And when your body has become still,

reach out with your heart.

Know that we are connected

in ways that are terrifying and beautiful.

(You could hardly deny it now.)

Know that our lives

are in one another’s hands.

(Surely, that has come clear.)

Do not reach out your hands.

Reach out your heart.

Reach out your words.

Reach out all the tendrils

of compassion that move, invisibly,

where we cannot touch.


Promise this world your love–

for better or for worse,

in sickness and in health,

so long as we all shall live.


“Pandemic” by Lynn Ungar, it’s ‘s a poem regarding the situation and instead of saying how crazy things are, the author looks at it from a learning perspective and compares it to the Jew Sabbath, a time where you can take a moment to learn and just let things be in stop doing everything basically. It also suggests that we should try to connect with our inside in these difficult times. This poem has gone viral since it was posted in the author’s Facebook a little bit over a month ago and it was shared everywhere.


  1. In The of Pandemic


And the people stayed home.

And read books and listened, and rested and exercised,

and made art and played games,

and learned new ways of being and were still.

And listened more deeply.

Some meditated, some prayed, some danced.

Some met their shadows.

And the people began to think differently.


And the people healed.

And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways the earth began to heal.


And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again,

they grieved their losses, and made new choices,

and dreamed new images,

and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully,

as they had been healed.


This beautiful poem was written by the very talented Katherine, also known as Kitty, O’meara. This poem talks about the situation in a very classical way, as well as in a tragedy. It explains how many of us are learning, resting, exercising, and creating from our houses while the planet heals and our leaders reflect on their choices. It also ends on a very hopeful note, by saying that we will meet again and we will learn to love each other more than before.
