Transformation, by Paula Frew

White confetti falls,
Covering the ground
As people sleep in
Their warm abodes.
In the space
Of a scant few hours,
The world is transformed
Into a child’s snow globe,
Taken from the shelf
And shaken.


An Ohio native, the author wrote her first poem in the fourth grade. It was entitled Daffodils. At that time, she fell in love with the form. She wrote through the angst of adolescence and into the beauties and dissonance of adulthood. She has of late begun to write flash fiction. It speaks to her as another short form. Her first chapbook, Lyrical Legacy, was published in 2021.
