Magpie Tales #54: Puzzleland


She always took things far too literally
looking up words
to learn what they meant.
Though she knew
their words were mere shadows
imprecise, blurry.
Still
why did their words affect her so?
After all
she lived in a puzzleland
comforted only
by her own thoughts.
Briefly
until the next round.


This poem was inspired by the photo from Magpie Tales. Your feedback is greatly welcomed.
