This reflects Edmonton's uniquemulticultural ambience and the roles of diverse cultures in the makingof the city. The powerful images and thoughtful metaphors in these short lyricsshow readers the connections between Canadian nature (even within citylimits) and the sublime, especially in the overwhelming silence we cansense outdoors - if we pay attention.
The poet speaks to changeby helping us see natural phenomena around us in a different light eachtime we read his poems.
