The Black Swan
Margaret, Age 12, Barrie, ON

The obtrusive black swan, gothic and mystical, unwittingly contradicted the divine white mist.
A cherry blossom tree stood above, flamboyant with all its whimsical pink blooms. A china blue blossom, plump and flourished with ostentatious sparkles of dew stood out amongst them. It spiralled down to nestle within the black swan’s smoky plumage. They had found one another, two excluded from the social façade within nature’s community.

So, next time you chuckle at the different ones around you, whether it be a swan that should be white or an icy blue flower that should be flushed, refer to this, in rueful retrospect.
