Dear Readers

Fear not the Darkness, But What Lies Within, The recesses of our mind, The creepy cobwebbed corners,That lingers on and tickles us,With tingle feelings of alarm, The deep in the stomach, Pain we feel when we do warn, The fear is deadly it seeks, The deepest corner of our mind, It's just a story to alarm,Educate and provide entertainment for our minds. So read on dear reader, I hope you find the stories amusing and full of charm.

Happy Canada Day!!


Canada a mosaic of people
Standing proudly free
The one hundred and forty-ninth birthday
Of confederation 
When we all came together
At first under the flag of Britain 
Then finally to be one under a flag
With a field of red on each side
red maple leaf
 In a subject of white
In the centre
A symbol of our hearts
We love our country
Its people and traditions
We love the freedom of speech
Movement and freedom to vote

Some days just quietly
Thinking we are Canadian
How we are so lucky
To be in this country
To live strong and free
To enjoy our country
So beautiful far and wide
Riches of nature to behold

We love our symbols such as
The beaver and the moose
Hockey, toques, Timmies coffee
Butter tarts and maple syrup
To name a few
But most of all we love that
We can raise our families
In peace and tranquility
Proudly saying we are
Blending cultures and families 
For only together
Can we be one great nation
Proud and free

So we raise our flags today
And celebrating proudly our birthday
Happy Canada Day!!
Smiling at our neighbours
Offering thanks to the heavens above
For peace as we
Get together to party
As one

Rose Moon, Strawberry Moon

The Strawberry Moon occurs in the northern hemisphere on Monday the 20th of June 2016. The sun will rise at 4:45 a.m. and sunset will be at 10:34 p.m. but the moon turns on  
June 20 at 7:02 a.m. Eastern Standard Time,  It's the longest day of the year and Summer Solstice. Both of these will not coincide again until June 21, 2062 so enjoy tonight.

Rose Moon, Strawberry Moon 
Strawberry moon
A deceptive name
For it's amber
In its colour
Hot Moon, Honey Moon 
Long Night Moon
A Rose Moon by any other name
For Summer Solstice
Seventeen hours of sunlight
Followed by bright lit sky
The sun super high
The moon super low
Coexisting in one sky
Fragments of light
Across the spectrum
Creating amber glow
Filling the sky
With warmth
Bringing a feeling
Of peace and love
Look up, enjoy
For the Strawberry Moon
Will not be again nigh
Coinciding with Summer Solstice
Until June 21, 2062
So seek out its warm and guiding light
Let go of all the inner fight
Hold on to the peacefulness 
Of the night

Embrace the energy 
Dance and rejoice 
Eat and be merry
In the waning hours
Of the moon

D-Day 72 years later

D-Day 72 Years Later

Image result for dday

The sky was dark
The wind grew strong
5000 ships lay laden
With equipment and troops galore
Under heavy fire from guns
Whizzing over head 
Into burden limbs
Shells landing
Bursting through bodies
Blood and bodies lining the waters
A cacophony of sound
Reverberated through the hearts and minds
As the overloaded boats  
Overlooking sanding beaches
Once the crown vacation spots of Europe
156,000 American, British and Canadian forces
Landed on five beaches in Normandy
Some killed before they reached the coast
Drowned with all equipment on
Their boats short of their goal
Others fought to swim to shore
Losing guns and equipment to survive
The big guns picking some of them off
Some still bravely made to shore
Shores mined, covered with wooden stakes
Metal tripods and barbed wire
Tanks and men on foot
The troops trying to clear them
Most difficult and dangerous
Added to the pain and horror
Two battalions of Germans
And a Panzer division
Awaited the Canadians on Juno beach
The Royal Winnipeg Rifles and
The Queen’s Own Rifles of Canada
Fought strong and hard
Casualties amongst them highest
In the opening waves of battle
The Queen's Own Rifles of Canada
And all our Canadian troops
Scrapped, tussled and clashed
As did all the other troops
Proving their mettle
They reached their D-Day objectives

The Canadians took 
Juno, and so the villages needed too
They made us truly proud
Canadian landings on Juno Beach
One of the most successful
But we never forget
The sacrifice of those
Who gave their all
So we could end the war
To have peace again
And enjoy the fruits of life
So on this day 72 years later
We remember their sacrifice
And every day
For their love of country
And home they forfeited
Peace of mind, fear and life

We shall never forgetImage result for d'day- Juno beach
Their sacrifice 

Image result for d'day- Juno beach

And remember them forever
American, English and Canadian

One and all
Forever more
