Cambridge, Ontario

Mark Nenadov

At the right time of year the city sparkles.
Sparkles slowly emerged from the Grand River
and slowly reflected from cloudy windows
on the Anglican stone church with the red door;
almost made it a pity we didn't live there.

You stood there in front of the church for a pose
carrying our first child; red coat matching the door;
beaming smile marking out our 1 year mark
touring Water Street South, Queen Street, and Main Street
and the burgers at a place on 13 Main Street
became another sun sparkle in our day.
