Canada Day On English Bay

July 2, 2013 at 12:40 am (Poetry) (, , , , )

An armada of Canada geese float by


giving their own Pride Parade a try


a streak of white feathery cloud


soars above the Maple Leaf so proud


as if it was put there by a winged unicorn


giving hope to those who feel forlorn.


And golden red embers seem to burn in the sky


as if sky elves created a campfire so high


and from the fire a billowy white phoenix seems to rise


to a former self having said its good-byes


it embraces a new dawn at sunset


embracing a new form without regret


and on the beach people of every race, faith and nationality


who see in one another a common humanity


in a place where dreams become reality


a land God made for you and me


a land God intended to be free.
