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.
