Forget-Me-Not

On Monday night, June 8, 2015, Edmonton Police Officer Constable Daniel Woodall was killed in the line of duty in Edmonton. He will be forever remembered with love.

 

Blue ribbons trail upon the tender ground

we join our hearts in sad celestial sound                        

to fill a void, so deep, so rare a man

that only tears express what words we can

Blue ribbon adorns a tree on 90th Street, Edmonton

he was a Daniel his lions bravely fought

not rose nor sage but our forget-me-not.

Sarah’s Haiku

Living next to Commonwealth Stadium can be interesting at times.

One hears the moans, groans, mutterings and cheers of the Edmonton Eskimo enthusiasts; I have also heard bands such as ACDC and Bon Jovi from my backyard. But last week, we were graced by the voice of Sarah McLachlan as she rehearsed for the opening ceremony for the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup Soccer event.  

So, I wrote this haiku.

baby birds under a lilac bush

breathe in your voice

song surfacing
