Margaret Alice

Rookie - 3 Points (The Crystal Age / Pretoria - South Africa)

Sunflower-Like - Poem by Margaret Alice

Pink wrap-around blanket like a
Peruvian skirt to face the office
freezing cold - minus 1 degree
Celsius outside

Wish I were in the Pyrenees, we are
just as cold without snow for beauty,
our little world wobbling at home -
Carine depressed

Trying to process loss of her beloved,
sadness expressed in the leg growing
sore, long days reading the complete
Harry Potter series

Seeking ways to turn her mind sunflower-
like towards the golden sun outside, the
promise of new beginnings as soon as
she is strong again…
