A family reunion
Covers the murky water
of the emerald green pond.
They share their water haven
with pigeons, geese,
and a lonely seagull.
Tall waving reeds
surround the pocket-sized refuge
shielding the pondís inhabitants from the city.
A thin bald man
gazes at the gathering
from a small wooden bridge
that rests above the pond.
A startled duck darts across the water,
flapping its colourful wings loudly,
leaving white water in its tracks.
This small disruption
Breaks the calm for just a minute
Then the peacefulness returns to the pond.
I am the secret observer
I feel relaxed and grateful
to be here.
