Treasure Island

Margaret Alice Second

(24 January 1961 / South Africa)

Chase The Grey Coldness (REVISED)


My umbrella’s magenta not ordinary pink and
magenta is the placemat under my keyboard;
pink rose in my zenith-blue mug and a purple
star on my magic wand - upright zenith-blue
tray with same colour dishcloths front of me,
my top lavender with pink shoelace lanyard

My work-station’s second chair resembles a
boudoir with white scarf offset to silver-white
fan & reams of colourful beads, Miss Marple
bag, blue jersey as big as a dress complete
this picture - I briefly consider cleaning up
and washing my pink cup - but luckily

Conscientiousness wins debate, dutifully I
continue with a lack-lustre oil pipeline and
rail link translation; day lacks excitement,
at least I’m awake and soon it will end, I’ll
be free to sit, watch rain & clouds at play
making plans for a warm dinner to chase

Grey coldness of non-stop drizzle away


[ORIGINAL: ]

Magenta’s the colour of my umbrella, not ordinary
pink, magenta the placemat under my keyboard,
pink the rose in my zenith-blue mug, a purple star
on my magic wand, zenith-blue the tray standing
upright - as well as the dishcloths right in front of
me, lavender my top with pink shoelace lanyard

The second chair in my work-station resembles a
boudoir with a white scarf offsetting a fan in silver
white & reams of colourful beads - a Miss Marple
bag and blue jersey as big as a dress complete
the picture - I briefly consider cleaning up the
mess and washing my pink cup but lucky for me

Conscientiousness wins the debate and dutifully
I continue with my lack-lustre translation on oil
pipelines and rail links, my day lacks excitement;
at least I’m awake and soon the day will end and
I’ll be free to sit and watch rain and clouds at play
while making plans for a warm dinner to chase

The grey coldness of the non-stop drizzle away

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
