Little Girl

.

Galanthus rivalis 2 [Snowdrop], Slovenia: photo by tsiegretlop, 7 April 2012


White as a snowdrop
tiny and sweet and bright
abandoned early after departure of her first friends
stuck it out in her own territory
a cold bare stone fence
braved those many long hard years alone
out there on mayhem street
all weathers exposed
sleeping in grease under cars
found her way in here after all that
a joy every minute since
so undemanding of life yet so full of life
before the cancer came
left the world this morning
.................................sorely
missed
........lived
..............and died
on this block
of nothing but strangers and passersby

The enchanting #snowdrop. Pure beauty emerging from sleep pushing towards hope, dreams and magic, as nature intended.: image via Evolving Spaces @shuiway, 5 April 2015
