This picture reminds me that I am a proud Canadian because of all the blowing snow. This picture is special because of how hard it was to take.


They Say

A sad poem that I wrote in 2016. I don’t write this sad anymore though.


Day Ending

A beautiful day ending. Makes me capture the scenery as I think of how grateful I am to be here after some big obstacle in my life.


We, The Candle Lighters

It is rare that I write down my poems in the moment when inspiration hits. I wrote this quite quickly, but unlike poems I edit and spend time rethinking, this spur of the moment, automatically written poem holds actual meaning. It’s a look inside my mind when I realized that the time was an hour earlier than I thought, contemplating how to spend it, within the first aforesaid minute. I hope it makes sense to more than myself.
