A Walk Down Church Street

Rain
Pouring from the sky
The umbrella tries
In vain
To keep me dry

Puddles
Form as splashing droplets
Collect with dirt on pavement
Muddles
My shoes, to my discontent

Reflections
Like mirrors on the street
I watch myself watching me
In the intersection
Glad that I wasn’t hit by a taxi

Misty morning
What a beautiful way
To start off my stay
Sojourning
Near The Gooderham Building today

Eager to explore
The city of Toronto
We should go sightseeing pronto!
I joyfully implore,
“Where next in Canada should we go?”

Far Away From The Skyscrapers

There are things we may not agree on –
I’m not much of a city girl; all the trucks and cars,
Buildings reaching for the sky, noise and neon –
Light pollution preventing me from even seeing the stars!

I get lost easily in the large crowds;
There are way too many people rushing past me.
Go with the flow, like raindrops in clouds,
No, I go my own way or disoriented I’ll be.

Show me a place where the buildings taper,
Where trees show off their grandeur.
Away, far away from the skyscrapers,
See all of God’s creations in its splendor!
