Dreams of Arabian Nights



Lofty dreams

that grew

on palm trees

in the desert dunes




For me

came to fruition

far away

where pigeons croon




Here by the canal

In Montreal

This is where

I started to write





those dreams

and found my voice

and found my fire

…and fight




soon returning home

with a torch of light

to burn through

my Arabian nights
