A Study of Action and Movement

Memory

August 2018

 

 

Shining dully from the coffers of the soul

Leaning hard against the heart.

Mute testimony.

Memories from the moulds of yesterday.

A silent, siren call

Glimpses of sacred pieces

Of the who and how of then, seeking solace.

Tears wash away the covering shroud

Expose the secrets in their sweet repose

Lying, waiting with infinitesimal patience

for the prodigal return.

Spirit Bird

BY Gary L Saunders

THE ROYAL CANADIAN GEOGRAPHIC SOCIETY, having canvassed the country for two years, had finally narrowed the search to Perisoreus canadensis, a robin-sized cousin of the raven and crow native to every province and territory and nowhere else on the planet. Unlike most of our birds, it stays up north year-round, nesting in temperatures as low as minus 20 degrees Celsius. Hardy, smart, loyal and friendly – what could be more Canadian?
