Cool shade

Relief from a hot morning

in the shade of the elm

by the park

we eat fruits

I drink coffee

cat rolls and plays

birds chirrup.

Your dad is sick in bed;

we were, but now healing.

We sit outside, breathing fresh air,

moments of solace from a sick house

becoming pleasant memories.

More than respite –

joy (to the world!)
