Scott, William Bruce

William Bruce Scott


The day is soft and warm. A bit of a breeze brings the scent of lilac through my kitchen window. Returning swallow families rush back and forth in furious argument over housing, and a single humming bird has come to the window to remind me to fill the feeder.

I’ll sit on the deck with my coffee, but there’s only one mug and an empty chair beside me.

Bruce, my partner, my companion, my husband died at the beginning of May in Kelowna Hospital.
