‼️‼️Happy Canada Day‼️‼️

It started in July, 


A British North American Act

Self governing dominion 

Here’s a little story

Of how we came to be

When European explorers 

Thought the indies they did see

They met the native peoples

And called them Indian

There were no maps to show them

New territory they were in

They lived a way of life

Some were nomadic

Others farmed the land

They valued and respected

Missionaries and explorers 

Interacted in a way

That changed them all forever

And took their land away

Populations changed

As interactions mingled

Prosperity for some

Discrepancy commingled 

The British sent Cabot

Who found us by mishap

The French they had Cartier

Who put “Kanata” on the map

A word from the people,

Meaning settlement of village

A community together

And some did suffer pillage 

The competitions grew

Of who would own the land

Nothing has changed here

The world and it’s commands

Eventually some truce

Was put on papers true

Signatures together

Accommodated too

Migrations and expansions

North America did split


Set North the Loyalist

The first to Prohibit


Upper Canada’s Gen. Simcoe

Abolished slavery 

The North Star was followed

The empire was inviting

Underground Railroad

Anti slavery was in writing

This is just a glimpse

A bit about our nation

We are a country with

Abundant diversification

This is my village home

I share some history

Oh Canada, North Star

I highlight humanity

We’ve always been inviting

And we will stand on guard

All people here together

In Canada’s backyard


“When you love 

Where you’re livin’

It’s pretty cool

Being Canadian”





For many it is difficult and this is quite outstanding
Plenty of us are scattered and barely even standing
The many situations and life of circumstances 
Brings us to our knees and halts so many chances

The time you spend in kneeling 
Is naked and revealing
Humbled and at the mercy
For water when you’re thirsty

In this gripping time you may not be familiar
And now you see to suffer, is not for all so similar
To depend upon a system, or ask for some real help
Invites you to reflect on how others may have felt

You might have been a leader, or a working bee
And now you are just hoping, to feed your family
It’s nothing new to some, but it is new to you
And now you learn from them, there’s more that you can do

Reassessment of all wants, if they were really needs
You find what really matters and let go the many greeds
The time and all the effort, who was driving who
So many in society controlling over you

When you’re on your knees, begging is an option
Knowing what you have, is standing in your fortune
The life you try to fill with fussy little details
Means nothing to the eye, when all other else fails

The most compromising times, when you are at your worst
Are there to teach you things, and introduce the thirst
At first you mourn a loss and then you ask because
You thought you were in charge and now you feel the loss

No one can predict, a major transformation 
Its power is most likely, a divine intervention
When you see the light that shines in the darkness
You dust off your knees and faithfully find kindness 

Forgetting all your woes and knowing what you need
Life is not the same after believing does proceed
New tools you have to build and dig your way back out
The excitement you discovered will take away the doubt

It really takes a loss, to find you had a gain
There’d be no such thing as pleasure, if there was no pain
To think of falling down, as something so upsetting
It’s really there for you, to see what you’re forgetting


“When you’re on your knees

Begging is an option

When you use your feet

Standing is your fortune”





Are you tired?

Yes I’m tired

All the bad news

All the sad stories

All the misfortune

All the worries

So many views

So many screens

So many people

So many scenes


And confused

So many people

Are abused

What’s in your face

Can get too much

Life right now

Can’t take this stuff

There is no quick

Or easy way

To fast forward

Through the day

Take hold right now

As you discover

In this moment

You need cover

Stop what you’re doing

Turn things off

A little silence

And some love

It’s ok

Yes it is

Time for you

To honour this

A little rest

Is all you need

Social media

Brings fatigue

Without awareness

To this issue

Declining health

Will affect you



When you’re tired

You can’t care

Remember you

Before you started

And your heart

To be cathartic

What you can do

For your soul

Is best aligned

When you are whole

Be kind to you

Close your eyes

Breath in deep

And realize

What in the world

You can’t control

Can be altered

When you console

Human nature

Needs all humans

Nature needs

Natural humans





I understand
Not all believe
And some who do
Still can’t conceive

Around the world
Are empty tables
Vacant temples
And fairy fables

Every single
Human being
Is more aware
To what they’re feeling

It drives right home
If you are threatened
Makes you think
You were forgetting

When asked to do
We get to choose
But when we’re told
We just have too

So at this time
When you are asking
Is there a reason
You are expecting

To make some sense
And understand this
You now have time
To see what you miss

On this day
So close to Easter
Golden eggs
Loose their lustre

All attention
From before
Different now
We want more

More help to get
More space to grow
More peace of mind
More love to show

The common thought
We all can’t see
Was always there
Was always free

The most important
And most prized
Above all else
Are human lives

On Good Friday
When you’re alone
Think of the son
From Father’s throne

It doesn’t matter
If you believe
Just think right now
Why you grieve

So much you had
And did ignore
What in the world
Was it all for

One day ahead
Or one behind
If you stop
You will find

That all along
As some are working
Just like the jobless
We’re all searching

For that purpose
And some value
And some love too

Beyond all measure
And a doubt
No greater love
Has more clout

The one and only
In all of history
An innocent man
Murdered violently

For the reason
And so pure
A man on earth
For spirit cure

All the crime
And all the sins
To say “Oh God!”
What does it mean

It doesn’t matter
If you believe
Look past the facts
Religious creed

I have not said
And most do know
The greatest love
Was evil’s show

No one is wrong
No one is right
To ask for proof
Just shows your fright

How can we curse
And blame a man
Who only gave
All he can

When we cry
And ask for more
Why did we not
Thank him before

Upon the faces
Pressed to windows
Distorted views
God only knows

When we cry
And feel sorry
God’s own tears
Know this story

He has given
We have taken
Now’s an offer
To awaken



“If you believe in luck
It’s evident to me
That hope is in your heart
And this is quite lucky!”


If I were an elephant 
I’d hold my trunk up high
It would be so easy
As you saunter by

If I were a rabbit
And you said my name
3 time’s upon your waking
Prosperity is your gain

If I were a cat
A Maneki-Neko kind
Surely the direction
Is something you will find

If I were a goldfish
I can’t remember why
But if you catch me first
Oh copious am I

If I were a frog
For sure I’d bring the rain
To all your crops and plants
I’d render every grain

Here come the bugs and beetles
Pay attention to the scarab
To the God Ra deity
A quest born to the Arab

If I were a piggy
To me you might resort
Every time you save
There’s happy in my snort

There is another character
Perhaps you’ve heard of me
Without my pot of gold
 4 leaf clovers do kill me

If I am a leprechaun
And you believe in me
I’d say that’s quite fantastic
Your dreams alive to see

Beware the evil spirits
Take note of those who say
That thinking what you do
Needs proof in every way


Beautiful People🌷🙏
Your Luck is served...




There is a love
Meant for you
It is meant
For others too

It’s all inclusive
And embracing 
Nothing beats 

Not exclusive
It’s absolute
All there is
So astute

For there are many
Stories told
Of a love 
To behold

There is abundance
This is true
The many friends
Your life through

For your family
It can seem hard
But loyal blood
Stands on guard

Were it not 
For divorce
There is love
Denied it’s force

Oh the lovers
They embrace
Body’s join
Love misplaced

In the moment
You are challenged
Love’s pure power
Can be strengthened 

There are rituals
And sacrifice
What is offered
Love to slice

Without a doubt
What we would do
For our own child
And others too

After reading
What is above
Can you now see 
The greatest love?





Upon my head
You place your hand
Fingers stroke
And understand

You lift my chin
To look at you
My eyes they focus
And lips part too

A single tear
Lingered on
Held by lashes
And then it’s gone

The time it took
To land somewhere
My heart was struck
And now aware

Within your hands
My face did rest
My own heart leaning
On your chest

My breath upon
My lips did slow
From where I felt
A warm heart glow

All sense and smarts
Did abandon
It was here
Love commanded

Lowered gaze
You looked at me
I’m locked inside
What my eyes see

Standing still
Our lips did meet
The earth has moved
Beneath our feet

In all of time
And in survival
Exists the kiss
That brings revival

My God to know
The mighty inference 
And meet the kiss
That makes a difference

It’s not just fluffy poetry…. it makes you think‼️

Life was not meant to be lived alone, and yet we all have thoughts that we own and are not shared.
No two thoughts are ever the same, nor felt the same by another. Perception is endless… we all have this unique outlook in life. Combine this with your own interpretations …phenomenal….

International Women’s Day, March 8 2022

International Women’s Day
‼️The Ultimate Leader‼️✍️

What have you done
For the women you love
Sisters, daughters
Mothers of sons

Equality is not a theory
It’s the fight against bias
So if we know the problem
Why aren’t we united?

The Ultimate Leader
Is that of a woman
Given the role
Of birth in the world

She is the host
Provider of shelter
The one that carries
Tomorrow’s future

To love and care
Without any bias
A woman gives more
And hurts in silence

She is chosen
To represent
The gift of life
Miracles sent

Mother nature
Cannot be replaced
Nurturing hope
Amidst disgrace 

In her heart
There is a bond
That helps the weak
Find their strong

Always the first
To be last in line
Does her duty
For all of mankind

Shows her best
With experience
Selfless service
And diligence 

Women are sisters
Of the world
United in justice
Protecting what’s hers

The home she keeps
Is her fortress
Give her a challenge
And you will notice

No skill can compare
To a woman who knows
That people come first
Before business clothes

Superior complex
Of men who put down
The woman that cares
Wears a king’s crown

Some have a problem
Admitting a woman
Knows more about
The heart of a human

If integrity
Is the top leader
No wonder a woman
Is the best teacher

For the right to be
She has served more time
On the side of righteous 
Inside of your mind

To feel the way
A woman feels
Try running the world
Wearing high heels

You have to admit
It’s well overdue
That women deserve
An apology too

For all the wrongs done
And rights denied
Lack of support
Abuses and lies 

For all little girls
Being told what to do
Society builds walls
That women break through 

In the face of adversity
We’re the first to stand up
Rebuke acts of force
And replace it with love 

We seem to know more
About what isn’t fair
And here still fighting
Centuries later 

We didn’t invent
The nuclear bomb
And when we rule the world
Maybe peace will come

Wars are as old
As man’s time on earth
Flexing their muscles
Not seeing true worth 

If instinct recalls
The female attracts
Then men will try
To dominate that

Dear boys in the office
Recall your mother
Your biggest fan
And supporter

To encourage a woman
And add to her worth
Allow her voice
To speak her words

Be open and kind
Look up to her eyes
When you are a leader
You show other guys

How to treat people
As they should be
And that includes women
Equal and free


Beautiful People‼️🙏🌷❤️

In honour of International Women’s Day❤️🌷

The ultimate leader
Loyal and true
Is that of a woman
Who honours you

My Adjustment Making Resolutions

My Adjustment

I struggled this year
More than last
This festive season
Begged me to reason

Last year in lockdown
I could still see people
This year’s protocol
I was isolated, 
Nowhere to go

I tried to make sense
Of unknown potential
Being exposed
Negative results, still meant no!

No physical contact
Or social distance
Just isolate
From other humans

Sure there’s the phone
And live video
Sorry, not the same
For us sad people 

True to its form
Isolation means alone
Locked away 
Inside of your home

With Christmas plans
Cut off in its tracks
Without light
How will I get back

Thinking of Santa
And a dear with a mask
Does Christmas get cancelled
If you think like that

In my despair
I turned off the world
Lied down to cry
And let my tears flow

In my pity
On Christmas Day
I wanted my spirit
To light the way

I am human
This I accept
Drowned out thoughts
With holiday music

I connected
Back with God
It made more sense
This I thought

All of my plans
Hopes and wishes
Changed in a moment
Of one second

So there I was
Alone in the dark
Trying to open
The love in my heart

Ok I get it
The world is not me
But why couldn’t I 
See my family?

Covid Christmas
You’re a nasty virus
When alone
One needs courage

Before reaching out
I have to look in
Realize the truth
Find my love again 

I’m not without hope
And I felt desperate 
I know in my heart
It was not cancelled

The celebration 
I missed out on that day
Was to commemorate
God’s son’s birthday

Oh joy to the world
Hope and delight
I was one 
Who needed the light 

For me to feel
In need of prayer
The light from others
Helped with my fear

I was here
I’m still alive
I was safe
I did not die

I said to myself
It’s a wonderful life
Remember the miracle
And that you’re alive

The gift of hope
Born in a barn
A star of light
One night in a town

Being human is harder
Than being a leader
When you are without
Your own self believer

You’re allowed to struggle
And be vulnerable 
Let yourself learn
Your spirit to earn

When you know in the end
The tears you display
Will help light tomorrow 
Because of today 

It’s not without
The storms that wether
For you to know how
And when to feel better

It’s ok to stop
And retreat
It’s not ok 
To lie with defeat

Give yourself time
Let your soul rest
Pray in the silence
Of isolation’s nest

You’re not giving up
You are not selfish
Your making room
For new adjustments

Making Resolutions 

Making Resolutions
Is a decision
In all decisions 
Leave room for adjustments

To make something happen
Resolve to decide
That what you want
Needs an open mind

New year resolutions
Require old year conclusions 
Take the good
Learn from the bad
Keep the dream
Adjust the plan

Goal setting is exciting
Life goals take time
Planning a good life
Needs your ability to adjust

Keep your dream alive
By staying in the game
If something doesn’t turn out the way you plan it
Try something else

Do not give up on your goal
Of letting yourself be happy
When you are a believer
Be open to possibilities

Participate with your self 
The best way you can
Allow prosperity
The view of possibility 


Canada Day 2021… In Honour of ‼️THE GRAVES OF CHILDREN‼️

A day in history 
To celebrate a nations birthday
Is today one to mourn
And honour it’s innocent children

In recent events, the unmarked graves of indigenous children have been discovered at former residential schools across Canada.

Celebrations this year are tempered by a nations grief and need for reflection. Today, in a most Canadian way, we acknowledge the atrocities inflicted on the innocent. We honour the young lives taken too soon and the survivors whose voices were silenced for too long.

Oh Canada - It’s time now to listen, to feel, to acknowledge and to heal. We are Canada. We are Kanata. We are a village. And today we gather as one people and one community

You are a leader
Whether you like it or not
For all children born
To you they look up

With the birth of confusion
And the lack of reason
In the arms of delusion
Our babies are breathing

Parents or not
All that you do
As an adult
A child sees you

Nurturing is needed
Not all receive fair passage
Cruelty wears disguise
Distorting the real message 

This just gets me going
For children are most pure
Precious souls I pray
For earth to love you more

All the little feet
That never learned to run
I cry to think of cruelty
Sending innocents heaven

To all the little souls
Whose lives were cruelly stolen
It’s hard for me to grasp
Your murder as a reason

Painful memories
Buried in the past
Stolen from your life
The truth returns to blast

As you look down on us
And see us gathered here
From time so short we learn
That life is just not fair

I mourn the loss of you
I pray to your mass grave 
In all your open spirits 
May justice find you brave

I honour your short life
It is the hardest lesson
All leaders need to speak
For children are a blessing

If I could die for you
I’d do it right away 
For you to breathe in air
Where you could see life fair

A child is the future
And when you kill a child
The future you destroy
What are you living for?

To people of the earth
The ones that here remain
It is your job to do
To now shout out for change




That funny feeling 
That laugh in your head
Joking with self
At mistakes you misread

Playing it out
You set up the scenes
Allow scenarios
From the mind machine

Like asking a question
Or giving advice
How to respond
And still be nice

In serious matters
That make you annoyed
Some funny results
You try to avoid 

Attempt you will
To keep a straight face
When applying decorum
And not to disgrace

The humour you’re given
When letting it slide
You’d rather laugh
Then break down and cry

To someone unknown
You apply apprehensive
Give them a stare
And try to reframe this

Behind a blank face
With eyes bulging wide
It really is hard
To stymie smile’s guide

To burst with a cry
And release the belly
You want to explode
And laugh so silly

To those you know well
You’re likely to show
What’s on your tongue
And trust that they know

You really need time
To account for the reasons
In matters of hearts
And what you believe in

When serious visits
Sometimes it helps
To see the humour
And push the pain out

Chastising aside
It might or it won’t
Attraction is strong
On a happy note

There’s medicine here
You can apply to the wound
For pain and it’s crew
Need a good mood

In a moment of truth
Loss is serious
Humour beats pain
Amuse the facetious

To laugh with yourself
And joke at the greed
The smile on your lips
Is all that you need

For the serious matters
You know you’ll address
Humour’s gift is respite
Where reasoning lives

If a thought is funny
And heart wants to laugh
Tell brain to respond
To the chief of staff

A secret weapon
Humour is rich
If something is funny
Turn on the switch 

The only thing 
That can change your mood
Is your own..


👉Beautiful People‼️

Time flies when you are having fun
And leaves you with a better disposition 

“The only thing that can change your mood
Is your own attitude”



I look at others and I do see
What I don't have inside of me
I'm all alone beside myself
Atop a wooden empty shelf

I look below an endless pit
I look above and feel misfit
To the left and then the right
I try so hard with all my might

Are there things that I must know
Is there something I must show
Will I fit in & be ok
It takes me time to find my way

There is a reason here I perch
Upon this shelf of carved out birch
And when I wonder what’s in store
Something inside just says there’s more

There's room for you upon this shelf
And in return you’ll find yourself
Far better yet, don’t disregard
Join me now for this is hard

I'm lonely yes but just a bit
I'll wait some more until you hit
A point inside there’s no return
Oh my your here! How fast you learn

A friend just sat right next to me
Someone who believes in me
The shelf so lonely now is shared
A friend with me for whom I cared

This friend of mine was wise and smart
Applauded me & touched my heart
Dear little book upon this shelf
It’s time to share and nothing else

Your pages are your own to write
You have the answers, you were right
Never let the cover fool you
Be yourself in all that you do

Big book in all its history
Said these words to little me
Inside of you is something real
And It’s ok...to say how you feel


“Pick up a book and start to read 
Sometimes that’s all you really need”

Beautiful People🙏🌷
You Are👉A Human WORTH Being 



Is Mother Earth now crying
Or have we been denying
To see her tears were flowing
For so long she was showing

All the signs we cannot see
We’re not checking reality
What is happening to all of us
When it’s too late is when we fuss

Over time that started when
All the earth is full of sin
There is goodness to see too
It is our Mother’s faithful virtue

Was she born or always was
Do we just settle just because
What part do we have to play
When mother dear has to pay

All the beauty in the world
Mother Earth dancing swirled
So full of grace and all we need
Mamma’s baby, we her seed

She has planted and conducted
All she had to us instructed
Underneath our marching feat
Mother Earth and her heartbeat

Mass corruption and dispute
Nature’s arms we refute
Something here is amiss
Look around at all of this

Every part of every land
She does love and understand
All her children, nature too
Now she cries all over you

Don’t you think it’s time to turn
Look at her and really learn
That what we need and what we want
Becomes a nightmare she will haunt

In order to find an answer here
We need our Mother Earth so dear
All the beauty she has given
For us to love and keep on living

We have somehow redirected
Everything now is just so hectic
When her breath became the fire
Mother’s tears with her desire

To the oceans her tears fell
Tried to clear the plastic well
Her eyes the sun where she is light
Her soul of course the core delight

Mother Earth to us is telling
Look around and just stop yelling
It doesn’t matter where you are
If you look she’ll show her scar

When we ignore the purest tears
We become our biggest fears
What we hide does manifest
The illness now is addressed

Oh the symptoms and description
Mother Earth has the prescription
All the steps of all her children
We walk upon her penicillin

Take stock of what she has offered
More than you she has suffered
There is a way to help her smile
If only we are not hostile


“When her tears
Become a storm
Mother Earth
To us does warn

She’s had enough
Of man’s conscription
What we need is her
