Gift of Island Poetry: Leon Berrouard

My Coffee in Aix-en-Provence 

Just past the Renaissance Cathedral
And across from the school gate
There was a small & warm café 
And that’s where I’d have morning coffee

I remember the narrow stone street
And the limestone buildings
As I watched the way things are
Drinking my demi-tasse of café noir

Before classes in the Université courtyard
I’d lock my bike and then go to a bench
And sit

The Guest Book: Richard Lemm

A region’s identity is often shaped, fleshed out, and emblazoned by its literary writers. Literary works help create perceptions, myths, and the ethos of a region. And not only among readers, for the effects of memorable literature permeate a culture.

PEI is a prime example of this through L. M. Montgomery’s writings and, to a lesser extent, those of “The People’s Poet,” Milton Acorn.

Island at the Centre of the World

Island at the Centre of the World
John Calder

Acorn Press has released Island at the Centre of the World by John Calder, a look at the geological history of Prince Edward Island.

PEI has a history. But its story begins far, far beyond the birth of the nation, the arrival of European settlers, the Mi’kmaq, or even the first humans. Its story is older than the Island, which was born of climate change and rising seas 7,000 years ago.

Cats and Dogs

Rain, rain, rain on the roof
like a noise machine – you’ve been listening
but you can’t hear the loop.
You aren’t alone. The past holds itself aloof
like a cat, absolutely certain
it’s the most captivating and misunderstood
creature in the room. Present
company included. The future is the twin
that couldn’t be more different.
Anxious as a dog leashed to a lamppost,
it knows its master, who’s
