“Cherry Trees” (2018) – Chapbook – Gloria Mannazzu – 14/15


Where are you now?
Wondering fancy thoughts
instead of leading your present.

It’s in the head
where the mind game consumes
your energies
the potential to reinvent your life.

Stay in the hara
stay where you breathe
watch what you see
breathe your worry away.
