Your Poem of the Month: Fall 2023

A popular feature in Good Times magazine is the Poetry page, where we showcase works written and submitted by our readers. Nicole Foucault “Treasures” appeared in the November-December 2023 issue.


Treasures can be old coins and paper money, 

Black-and-white photos from our youth (so funny!), 

A wispy lock of baby hair, 

An old much-cuddled teddy bear, 

A turquoise bowl favoured by Mother, 

A smelly pipe reminiscent of Father, 

Beloved books, handed-down recipes, 

Initials lovingly carved in trees… 

But everyone in the world will agree: 

The best treasures are friends and family. 

Nicole Foucault, Gold River, B.C.
