The Flamingo’s Wings

The Flamingo's Wings

The Flamingo’s Wings is a poem by Artist Zara Kolasinska who was 40 years old, 40 weeks pregnant and 4 days overdue when she gave birth to her stillborn daughter Ginger in November 2014.

It’s hard for Zara to express in words how terrified she used to be of people seeing her artwork or reading her writing partly because of dyslexia … but Ginger changed everything. Zara’s life is now dedicated to her daughters message; of being unafraid and unashamed.
