Grieve This Day on Golden Pond

Broncos

Front Porch Memorial on Alberta Avenue

As I write this poem, days after the Humboldt Broncos hockey team bus crash in Saskatchewan, my heart and all of the hearts here on Alberta Avenue, go out to those who are grieving today.

Grieve This Day on Golden Pond

“Prayers for Humboldt”

“Shattered Lives”

All signs of the times today

Grief unimaginable

Flying flags half-mast.

Yet, heart to heart and hand in hand

We reach around the World.

Green and yellow and golden threads embroider

this time, this day, this hour, now yours.

Your green lives in the prairie grasses,

Your yellow glows in the never-fading light

Bright yellow hair ruffled by a new wind,

Blows across this golden pond of ice

Forever binding us

Broncos strong.
