Leave them be
the petals, where they fall
Allow the yellows brown
in the sun
in unholy matrimony
with broken beer bottles
improperly doused ciggarete stubs
they do not want to be co-tenants
with chicken bones and pizza boxes
So leave them be
the flowers, where they fall.
Nana Yaa has a keen interest in the arts with a bias for Literature, which she realised early. She’s won a couple of literary awards including the Special Award for Creative Writing in 2012 in Wesley Girls’ High School. Her writing was mostly poetry until 2015 when she started writing short stories and flash fiction, a few of which she shares on her blog Oddinary Perspectives
She recently found out she enjoys proofreading academic essays. She also likes food and so finds any excuse to bake cakes.
Ironically, her formal education so far has been largely in Business. She is a final year Accounting major at the University of Ghana Business School. She is a Christian.
