The Art of Coping?

Readers, tell us how you’re coping, and give it some flair. The NIH Record wants your best poetry or haiku about how you’re handling life at the moment. Send us a haiku (Haiku is composed of only 3 lines. Every first line has 5 syllables, the second line has 7 syllables and the third has 5 syllables) or short verse (25 words or fewer).

If you prefer to show us how you’re coping, submit your original drawing, painting, photo or graphic. Send us a selfie to go with, too. We’ll publish the best we get over the next few issues.
