Vancouver Rising

Large harbours
On vast lakes
Carrier vessels and sail boats
Fog and rain
As each morning
Casts a renewed gaze
On those tall green trees
Go, reach for them
Pull them in
Draw them closer, closer in
Ruffle the leaves and savour the scent
Carry on higher, steeper, further
Look from atop the entangled branches
Upon the lake and the vessels in the harbour
Make peace with the stories and generations passed
Find calm amongst the chaos of the unpredictable forest
Find truth within the feet that take you through these adventures
For even if your feet do nothing but resting, find gratitude in the mind that lets you imagine.
