This postcard poem came to me from Sacramento. You can see more of the poet Alexa Mergen’s work at her blog:
The picture side of the postcard is Georgie O’Keeffe’s Narcissa’s Last Orchid, a pastel from 1941.
Both the poem and the postcard are lovely. Thank you very much, Alexa!
Thank you, Shaun! And thank you, USPS.
awww…this poem is a reminder that not just humans feel loss. So sad.
