Treasure Island

Margaret Alice Second

(24 January 1961 / South Africa)

Illegal Pink Proliferating (Second version)


Found an electric warmer pad for Nici and the illegal pink
fleeces are proliferating, found the softest pink fleece with
a heart design for her, she loved it and promised not to tell
her dad what a spendthrift I have become, now to clean my
corner in the lounge housing my figurines and crystals, not
to forget the special fairy, then to cover the table with a new
embroidered white cloth my beloved bought under duress
as he found my behaviour while shopping exasperating

I can’t wait to see the effect and in a celebration of the new-
found love for pink I’m wearing pink pyjamas which might
easily be mistaken, with a little bit of imagination, for a track
suit; a rose-coloured glasses perspective makes life seem so
wonderful - the world concurs because the sun has just escaped
the cloud cover and the whole world starts to glow; but it is time
to put the computer away and stop procrastinating, I want
to start cleaning the glass table corner - life is delectable

When simple pleasures like these put me in a Zen trance of
quiet, satisfied tranquillity…

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
