The secret of stillness

. . . how the robin chews the worm,

the rabbit simply listens

to the wind, how the wind itself

subsides before the tempest

comes wheeling from the north . . .

–excerpt from “The secret of stillness” in A Light Dusting of Breath by Donna Pucciani (virtual artists collective/purple flag, 2015). First published in Acumen.
