Elfje, Poetry by Sarah

Fragment

Terracotta
earth parched.
It cracks; breaks;
dintegrates crops and livestock.
Drought.

Golden
glow warms
my pale skin.
What’s this alien feeling?
Sunshine.

Yawning
Black mouth,
Hungrily swallowing seas.
Angry tides carve rock
Away.

Frosted

Frosted
green blades
crunch under foot.
Bracing breaths; foggy skies.
Winter.

Daffodils

Inspired by Mick E. Talbot who introduced me to Elfje…

Bulbs
Sprout green
Their fingers reaching
Towards the golden sunlight
Blooming.

Author’s Note: These bulbs were in the ground when we moved into our house in 2011. Every year, I try to dig them up (I’m not a fan of daffodils) and the following year, they continue to pop up again. It’s become a bit of a household joke about the daffs’ resilience and persistence. At least I got a poem out of them this time…
