150 – Poem by Mikko Kivisto – Winner of the Mayor’s Poetry Contest

Congratulations to Mikko Kivisto, winner of the Mayor’s Poetry Contest to celebrate Poetry Month in April and promote literacy, arts, culture and reading in our community.

The first Mayor’s Poetry Challenge in Canada was started by Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi in collaboration with The League of Canadian Poetsand the Writers’ Guild of Alberta.

I want to thank everyone who submitted an original piece. It was tough to select just one poem about our great country, and I think you’ll enjoy this piece by Mikko.
