Poem: Reprieve, by Mandy Sita

This gracious day of warmth
Abundant buds glow

Hints of prolific blossoms
Stretch towards this morning sun

Felines frolic the garden universe
Savoring a sunny roll in the earth

This outdoor empire exists indefinitely

The shoreline’s daily story exudes the reminder
Today, lulling, gentle

Peacocking swans parade their audacious and striking arcs
Kayakers and paddle boarders ready to glide, waiting

Relieved from the month-long plethora of midges
Pedals pulse, weaving through gentle pedestrians

Small families keeping distance
Obliging the two-meter rule

Some mask adorned, all wary
Like a line of obedient spaced out ants

We rejoice of a summer that will still come

Finally, a reprieve.
