The Maple Leaf


Resilient fire, in spite of her roots having been drained

she dances in the sun, holds herself against the blue

with the audacity of baring her beauty, as if

she were a painting made especially,

to declare openly that there is

love, and a Creator

that cares.

    1. Thank you Pam! Your comment is a great blessing. We’ve been to Canada several times and love it there but this was taken down our way on the East Coast. Peace to you and great blessings
