THE ANESONS

I have felt many a warm bosoms
…and blossomed in many a presence
But your aura is alluring
…your warmth is assuring
…even in the face of a world scare

II
From Sue’s delicious sandwiches
…to Ozzy’s soothing furs
From the beauty and the swinging chairs
…to the loving and reassuring arms
The Anesons have turned additional home

III
Who knew this indoor soul
…will so love outdoor challenges?
Who knew the Salish Orca
…will host and ferry this me
…to Mount Galiano
…ably accompanied by my Geography boss?
Who knew walking could pleasurably add value
…through a hiking so strikingly awesome?
Who knew laughter will bless the slaughter
…of my yesteryears?
Who knew I could be made to stand on two grounds at once:
…Maple and Rose!
Interesting rides with Norm
…a man cook!
Great conversations with Sue
…an amazing spirit!
And a final hug from Jake
…the shy gentleman
Who knew it’d be so difficult to part with Ben?
Who knew?

IV
A whole family holding hands
…to gift these amazing days
Showing this positively humane side
…of humanity
On this amazing land of Vancouver
…whose cold matches the harmattan of my land
…and stands to be fair
…in my explorations
The Arnesons are added blessings
…of spice in my blossoming story

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
