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”
All signs of the times today
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
