Poetry Pause

Poetry Pause is brought to subscribing emails by the League of Canadian Poets. My poem Grade One was selected on July 25th, 2022 and has been previously published in Sea & Cedar Magazine (Winter Edition 2022). This poem was inspired while teaching a grade one Nuu-chah-nulth student in the community of Esowista on Long Beach.
