Cycle on this busy day,
so much work, no time for play.
A quick stop without delay,
run errands while on my way.

Park the bike, notice display,
silently stare and survey,
swallow details in dismay,
absorb joyful times today.

Know that all will be okay,
hope this feeling always stays.
Solid bonds will never sway,
signs appear where pure hearts lay.

Close both eyes, enjoy sun rays,
let bright thoughts chase off the grays.
Tinted laughs never decay,
memories of yesterday.

– Grace Y. Estevez – Reddy

  1. A journey through the mind.
    Give her a Gold medal for her poems.
    The sharpest mind of the poet Grace.
    Your poems refreshing like cold water.
    Sometimes i go overboard with the comments but its worth it to compliment you.

    Great work

  2. The poem opens with the persona having a conversation with herself, to “Cycle on this busy day,
    so much work, no time for play”.

    Brings to mind busy days one has to force oneself to stay focused amid diverse distractions, especially in a bustling city where cycling helps one to navigate through traffic.

    Very colorful narrative. I love this poem. So beautiful. I feel like I should do a commentary on it but I don’t want to take up space in the comments.
