You are primary colours.

I am the shades between.

You are known and referred to.

My inky indigo is a gamble for the palette

You are immediate, the forefront of a child’s initial recollection

I am an invention

An afterthought of interest,

Perhaps an interesting complexity

When the child in her innate excitement abandons caution, hand and water glass collide

And we mix

With intrinsic clumsiness the page is alive with possibility;

should she choose to spare the paper.

Meg Falconer-Robinson

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 Stuff.co.nz
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.
