NextGen VOICES: Pandemic Haiku

Thank you for adding your voice to Science!

The NextGen VOICES feature calls upon young scientists to speak up. Make your ideas known!

A selection of the best responses will be published in the 2 July issue of Science.

Please submit your response by 14 May.

Question Title

* 1. Write a haiku-style poem in which the first two lines describe your career or field during the pandemic and the final line describes your hopes for your career or field after the pandemic. Your poem can be serious, silly, literal, or metaphorical, and it can focus on broad themes or one specific detail of your pandemic experience.  

(A haiku is a Japanese style of poetry written in three lines of five syllables, seven syllables, and five syllables, respectively. The lines do not usually rhyme.  Traditional haiku use imagery to describe the natural world. To see examples of haiku related to the periodic table, see https://vis.sciencemag.org/chemhaiku/.)
