The rain with its melancholy murmur awakened my sleep.

The loveliest of lovely days had arrived on my front porch.

Staring out the kitchen window, dew could be seen on the glass.

Coffee never tasted so delicious, the richness of the cream in my mouth.

The leaves swirled ever so slowly, circling around and around the trees.

Were it not for the devastating news of yesterday, all of this would have been noticed.


Gemilia is originally from Spain, and has recently moved to Saskatoon. She says that the city has been very welcoming to her. She says what really helped the process was the great support she got with immigration services, before and after arriving here. One of her favourite things to do is writing so she is quite happy being part of our group.
