Abraham Festival Peterborough 2017

Abraham Festival
Known for visiting places of worship
And for the fourteenth anniversary
We have three amigos from the South doing comedy
 An Imam, A Rabbi and A Priest

It just goes to show
We are not only inspiring Canadians
Only this week
I reminded someone
That the mosque was rebuilt
With Jews and Christians donating
While the Muslims were laughing all the way to the bank

Like the river of Babylon
Today First Nations join us
To celebrate our water crisis
That our Canada isn't 150 years
But 150 plus of rich history 

So while we laugh tonite
With the Interfaith Amigos
We must remember

Abraham opened his tent to every stranger 
And First Nations welcomed us from around the world
We will always sing Shalom, Salam and Megwich!

Poem on Lac La Biche- Romance of Lebanese and Cree

Up North
Where Borealis and deers kiss
The white blanket of Arctic light
Enchants a Cree woman Mcredi and Ali of Beirut

After one century and three Decades
A town filled of families
A life filled with accomplishments
A nation joined by two cultures

The first mosque furthest north for a while
Success in business and politics
A mayor who is proud to attend Juma
A fur trader who opened Hudson river

The romance that catches the eye
The man who was a friend of her brother
Hanging out together in a party
An suddenly like the moon had entered the room

How about some fresh air outside my fair lady?
Lac la Biche is the lake of the deer
Like the panting deer yearns for water so their hearts
The rest is a beautiful history!
