Perfect Imperfections© 2015

by Felina Silver Robinson

I am not flawless in my beauty

But my beauty is quite clear

My body sways with the wind

And despite my bending limbs

They remain perfectly in their place

The wind carries me to and fro

With seagulls on the go

The sun is sure to glow

Do you see my imperfections

Do you really even care

My limbs are nearly bare

I’ve been given a mighty scare

I wonder if you will still adore me

For I no longer stand tall

I’m bending everywhere

Reaching for your hands

You don’t return my affections

So I watch you rest your head

At the base of my stump

I feel your tears dropping down on

My roots

Sending life back into my

Perfect imperfections

As they begin to trim

Painting By Moy Mackay

Moy’s paintings are created by replacing paint as a medium with dyed sheep’s fleece,

she combines traditional felting techniques with embroidery.

The Winding Road© 2015

by Felina Silver Robinson

This broken down windy road

Where it leads I do not know

It’s cement cracks like the skin of the oldest of old

It brings fear to all those who must travel over its decaying remnants

But somehow the colors of all the houses that surround it

Make it seemingly inviting to where all feel they must be there

The neighbors spotted dog comes out to great you

While magical scents from the scattered plants whip through the air

Sending passerby’s into a trance that makes them all disappear

You are forewarned to be wary of this windy road ahead

Enter at your own risk
