Margarita Serafimova (Poetry) / Megan Larmie (Art)
A man dressed in black was descending
towards the cemetery resplendent in white on the hill.
It was a few hours before the sun was to set.
The forest of rusty lava stands
in the shape of wind.
World oaks at the edge.
I am entering. The waters
I was a foreigner, and my shadow
on the sunny path before me
There was sadness.
There weren’t words.
Time was flowing.
