An Ode to Alice

Beef stew. Jasmine buds. Sandalwood.
Sweet smells. Pungent memories.
Calloused fingers. Gentle heart.
Ethereal smile, ugly fortune.
A story of Beauty.
And a beast.
A story not of her making,
Not of her choice.
Yet the twinkle in her eyes,
The kindness in her words,
The joy in her songs,
Unyielding. Unwavering.
A legacy built with love.
Through the lives she bore.
Her creations amid a storm.
Her offspring. Her descendants.
Broken yet determined.
Damaged yet enduring.
Thriving. Rebuilding.
Their lives forever touched,
By the story of Alice.
