Haiku pattern – Tables Turned

At the end of March
We stepped off the planet
The world kept turning.

Our pace had to slow
With endless restrictions
Nature stayed at work.

We began to notice
Sounds so more distinctive
We listened more.

Birds became louder-
The blackbird, wren and thrushes?
You just thought that way!

We had quietened
And so insightful we saw more
That was nature’s gain.

Unhindered by us
Nature continued growing
The tables were turned.

What when this all ends-
Will we forget this learning?
We owe it to the earth.
