Where Have All the Flags Gone?


Christmas is coming and what can I write? I’m upset by the news both in daytime and night. Each Christmas I write down a poem with my thoughts, They are usually merry, but this year they’re not, For there are wars going on in so many places And migrants are moving to unprepared nations. Yes, …

By K. Taylor, Aurora ON. Have you ever gotten to the party, after the cake was served? You knew they had cake, but you didn’t get to eat it. I feel a bit like that right now. As drops of cold rain patter on the pavement outside, and a glum sky presses heavily down, I sadly …

By K. Taylor, Aurora ON. Summer officially started with a bang last night. I mean hundreds of gorgeous, brilliant heart stopping bangs. Cascades of glitter, golden waterfalls and ruby explosions; a celebration of light

By K. Taylor, Aurora ON. Right now; as I type these very words, Canada is hosting what could arguably be the biggest sporting event in the world. Yes we, the land of hockey, curling and lacrosse, are the proud hosts of the World Cup. The World Cup! Not only that, but we actually have a …
