Peace Park, January 2021

at the creek

water cold in

my ungloved hand 

 

distant winter sun

 

snap, clang 

shivered clench of 

white-fingered wind 

 

shaking Canada’s flag.

Sumac, grey arms

bent under snow, ice 

on the crusted, foot-slid path  

 

red wooden arc fades  

over the bridge, iced grasses  

wave gold angled light, heavy heads 

Friendship Gardens Park      

Town of Collingwood
