I Am Here

when you were three

you created a game

called feed the river

~

sand, pebbles, leaves, branches

your little hands

nourished the water

~

honour me here

remember our joyful memories

my gift of spirit

~

I want this place

your childhood smile

to be my eternal home

~

Taking Shape

driving across

canadian prairies

documenting disappearing

grain elevators

~

in stillness

my heart

holding every moment

we’re companions

in confusion

~

How do I honour

myself

after loss

~

I’ll never be the same

I’m learning to breathe again

changing shape

changing colour

First Date

20 years ago

art school

strolling through her space

~

a photocopy on her wall

an italian sculpture titled

dog defecating

~

a massive bronze retriever

curving his body

immortalized forever

~

she chuckled …

isn’t it hilarious

someone went out of their way

to create this

~

I’ve always loved her quirkiness

her unusual sense of humor

~

I had to ask her out
