At the Edge of Paradise.

At the edge of Paradise
The bobcat walks across the road
Disguised by the snow squall
In front of the speeding Honda CRV

At the edge of Paradise
River Bend Cranberry Farm
Has re-invented itself,
For another day

At the edge of Paradise
The CRIA building is repurposed
Into the Lunn’s Mill Beer Company
To support the local folks

At the edge of Paradise
The multiflora rose grows
Between the majestic spruce
In the experimental nursery plot

At the edge of Paradise
High speed Internet is promised
This will allow residents
To run businesses from home

At the edge of Paradise
The empty Naramata apple bins
Show the intent of youthful renters
To move into the neighbourhood

At the edge of Paradise
There is a hidden orchard
Full of NovaMac and MacFree trees
Showing the work of an early orchardist

At the edge of Paradise
The lone coyote leaves its scent
The dog walkers notice
On their next day trip.
