"Cherry Trees" (2018) - Chapbook - Gloria Mannazzu - 7/15

FEARING ABSOLUTES

Fearing absolutes
finding the middle way
we can grasp
the limits of who we are.

Our taste of imperfection
our sense of equality
our unexpected surprises
that come to us.

May we be
overwhelmed
by miraculous accidents
that make our lives silver and luminous.
