Margarida Ferra’s deceptively simple and contained poetry pays careful attention to the universe of the home and, as if collecting plants for a herbarium, it both reflects the makings of life and the makings of poetry in which the metaphors for roots, branches and blossom, as well as those for thorns, knives and scissors acquire a very especial meaning.
