Freckles, micropoetry written by Meg Falconer-Robinson at



written by: Meg Falconer-Robinson



I used to watch you sleeping

Your chubby mouth

Chest rising

Freckles sprinkled on your nose

Like stars


Now you keep the room dark

Your freckles have faded

I can only whisper

“Sweet dreams”

And hope you hear me still

In the dark.

Meg is a New Zealand writer born in Dunedin in 1981.
She gained a BSc in psychology from the University of Canterbury in 2015 which she considers one of her most surprising and satisfying accomplishments next to parenthood.
​She has had her work published in several online publications including SpillWords Press, Eat.Beautiful. and
She has worked as a freelance copywriter both in New Zealand and in the US.
She is fascinated by the complexities of the human brain, in both its conscious and unconscious capacity.
She has been putting the proverbial pen to paper since the age of 14 and describes her writing as a 'working through' ofa constant internal dialogue, and a self confessed indulgence in introspection.
Words matter.
These are hers.
