This six words well written poem is a real provocative thought whose echo will still be blowing in the wind for eternity. It's so difficult to answer this question, due to the fact that in such historical period man eats man when it deals with his own life. In my area there is no necessity to ask for help because within our town village we still can find all what we still need and among our families we do go on living in peace and within respect and observing all our recent government's new restrict laws without any problem and I have been segregated at home for about nearly a month. You never know what could happen in restricted need and what would one's react become. Chapeau for this one, poetess! Sorry I have no sixes left

Interesting topic. Will they? A great entry for the 6 word contest. I am going to make every effort to stray away from CoVid as a topic. It is consuming out creativity and I for one, need to reach out for the positives at this time. Your little piece of work though asks a very valid question.
It is a time to see who, in fact, will step up. Great job!
Wendy

These are poignant words and if it lasts a long time then systems will be in place to ration items that are being bought in bulk and supply will eventually meet demand, but let's hope the wait it no too long, poignant words here, love Dolly x

You have made excellent use of all six words the prompt allows. In my area, the answer is "Yes." People are helping each other, adding tangibles to prayers.

I've actually seen people negotiating for food with toilet paper and vice versa. I mean, I guess, if you have extra might as well trade for what you need. Hopefully, you know the right people.

It is a sad state of affairs that the world has suddenly come to this. I believe, yes, neighbors will share. I also know that the shelves will not stay bare. We will prevail, with God's help.

What a timely and inspiring wee poem. Great question, but sadly, I think the answer is mostly predictable. The Golden Rule has flown the coop, methinks... Shelves are bare, suppliers can't keep up...? What next, I wonder...

Omnipotent God gifts us everything free for lives; but per God's words, man's mortal gifts should also be free and free of expectations, but gift receiver should share the gifts with others as feasible, even if the gift is for the time being, for mortal man cannot gift anything like God; well said, well done; thanks for sharing this.

Good question. It all depends on who your neighbors happen to be. Mine is harassing me. I've learned that extreme crises like these, can either bring out the worst, or the best in folks. I've heard some great neighbor stories, and I am happy for them. This is an excellent use of the 6 word poem. I like the alliteration of "Shelves" and "share." The poem reads best when read aloud. It rolls off the tongue nicely. You have a wonderfully kind message, and hopefully, people will take your message to heart. The graphic artwork is striking in its meaning. It emphasizes the starving of those around us. Your title, which asks a question, appears to be answered quite well in your line above the title. Although I 'get' why you might've chosen the Spiritual category for this poem, I wouldn't call it that, in the strictest of terms, usually applied, when this category is chosen. Well written and very topical.
Take care, Jesse
