WASTED NO TIME
In Memory of The Honorable Pierre Elliot Trudeau


You have wasted no time
And never wavered love
Your sons and daughters
Our people lined strong

Respect flowered like a rose
Tossed in faith
Down the rails of time
To those who listen and wait
Rose petals lined our borders today
As a distant bells cry held
All at attention

(C)2000 Donna Allard

UPON THE SHORE

Upon the shore the tides trickle in
Forming the land another day

The morning sun rises like an old woman who lives alone
Eying the horizon glow of the days first cigarette

With a gentle breeze morning birds tiptoe in the waters
Not to awaken what lies beneath the bed

The sands fragile existence clings to rocks and seashells
Like old favorite toys

In the distance footprints
When we stopped to brush off our sandals

Our bodies hunger like sharks in the morning waters
The salt remains unquenchable

On the shoreline sandals
Like old boats upon the shore


(C)2001 Donna Allard

DANCES WITH FIREFLYS

Tonight the moon
Moves as if flipped
Like a dime between
Index finger and thumb...
And indeed I am to view these
Dances with Fireflies
My heartbeat echoes here - within these lines
A silver pin balancing earth and universe
Dancing on the evenings fluid sky
Wakeful as the waves crescent on the bay
Fireworks

And here, you and I are,
starring. Breathless

Here I am!


(C)Donna Allard

THE DUST WILL NEVER SETTLE
Little Satan is Canada
Big Satan is the USA according to Bin Laden followers.
America At War September 11, 2001


Little Satan watching
Paranoid and cautious
As morning flowers over NY City
Puppet planes whose strings were pulled and cut
Tore into NYs Twin Towers erupting into back draft flames

Horrors REPLAY on news casts
Cell phone silence
Workers leap in fear from buildings in clouds of dust
The earth rumbles
To the rhythm of the dead

As people stand for anthems
Haunting tapping on steel defy the three minutes of silence
Memorials that are world wide
Garland this planet to wear
After this moment of nakedness

The statue of Liberty?
Standing for Freedom
The rain mingling with its tears
Remembrance
Let not blood color our earth

Pope John Paul kneeling in white,
Hands upon his face in anguish, as
The world is under siege
All are on alert
For the judgment hour to come

I am calm
But scared for I know
The dust will never settle
The dust will never settle
The dust will never settle

(C)2001 Donna Allard
