Due to the recent increase in COVID-19 cases, RPL is pausing all in-person services and returning to Curbside Pick-Up Service at all of our locations until September 8.

Gentle, dappled light,
Through semi-shaded windows,
Waiting for someone.

Eyes above the masks,
Fearful yet still hopeful–
Can I be of help?

Masks cannot obscure
Smiles and grins and gladness.
We are glad you’re here!

Someone approaches–
“I’m so happy you’re ok.
We missed you, you know.”

“We missed you as well!”
My heartfelt yet sad reply.
Who might not return?
