Our story this week is drawn from a powerful collection of stories, poetry and visual art by the students at the Stony Mountain Correctional Institute in Stony Mountain, Manitoba. The following poem was written by D. Boudreau.
From the early morning sunrise
I see beautiful shades of glory
glittering through the horizon.
While ever glittering also dances
With delight of a beautiful sunrise.
As of so time goes by and by
dancing its way to the west
till suddenly a glare of a sunset
Setting down to its last sight
in an ever so sunset in the west.
With a beauty of darkness setting
into a full moon night of delight
to a calm but suddenly echoes of the
wild howling through the darkness
calls of the wild, ever so wild
in a Midnight, Twilight, Delight.
