“Taiga” is one of the winners in the Poem in Your Pocket Day postcard poem contest (League of Canadian Poets).

When I was growing up in a northern wilderness settlement I witnessed multiple wildfires and my family was evacuated by air when I was a teenager. Also in 2023 two of my family members had to again evacuate from two northern communities because of the enormous forest fires.

This year’s Poem In Your Pocket Collection features poetry by: George Amabile, Manahil Bandukwala, Rae Crossman, Jannie Edwards, Y S Lee, Kyo Lee, D.A. Lockhart, Briana Lu, Anthony Purdy, Sneha Madhavan-Reese, Richard-Yves Sitoski, Michael V. Smith, Eleonore Schönmaier and Pujita Verma..

  1. I shared it on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Mrs. Radford also shared it. It is very meaningful -especially for those who lived it!
