Poem from a Young Geezer

Come gather round
in the dust of time, as
tales unfold with
campfire songs at night
where stars mottle the
blackness, their diamond
pricks teasing bands
of memory

ah, family times- swimming
in Ontario’s cold Nottawassaga Bay,
gondolas climbing the
side of heart stopping Sulphur
Mountain, Alberta, green
growth among PEI potatoes
Cabot Trail curves in NS,
rocky soil at Northern
Quebec and swishing wheat,
golden across flat
Saskatchewan

the glory of BC Rockies,
scenic pastures in
Manitoba, Newfoundland
NB, my wife’s home
all like gravy over
the goodness of memories.
