YYC Portraits of People

Calgary's Poet Laureate Sheri-D Wilson curated this collection about Calgary .... ordinary people doing extraordinary things, extraordinary people doing ordinary things, which includes my poem silent lady, based on Lady Isabella Lougheed

silent lady
I poke beneath the tangle

of this long-abandoned garden

and find the creamy blossom

of the gracious Isabella

lily of this land
