Susan Lockhart and her Barra Daze

I "Heart" Barra!

Barra daze, Barra daze
Each new moon
A day is born
And across the sea you gaze

Lazy days, lazy nights
Each new moon
Sings a different tune
More laughter, more sounds, more sights

Happy chimes, happy times
Each new day
People play
And frolic, like pantomimes

Life is good, life is great
Each new night
A glowing light
And you sense that this is your fate

Barra daze, Barra daze
Each new year
You wind up here
And across the sea you gaze

— Susan Lockhart

In Mexico, it’s Suzy Sol; in BC Canada, it’s Susan Lockhart. Born in Vancouver, Susan lived her formative youth there; she went back to the land during the ‘Flower Power’ years and settled in the North Okanagan which is still home to this day. Barra Daze appears in the Bar None Anthology.
