Canada 150

false dawn
a demonstration teepee
on Parliament Hill

ice cream clouds
"O Canada! Our home ..."
in many tongues

rainbow fireworks
refugees in the shadow
of the Peace Tower

NeverEnding Story, July 1, 2017

Note: "The Peace Tower, also known as the Tower of Victory and Peace, is a focal bell and clock tower sitting on the central axis of the Centre Block of the Canadian parliament buildings in Ottawa, the capital city of Canada."
