The secret of stillness

. . . how the oak tree sits like a castle

hundreds of years old, how the ship

barely moves on the horizon, how

the horizon swallows it without motion . . .

–excerpt from “The secret of stillness” in A Light Dusting of Breath by Donna Pucciani (Purple Flag Press, 2014). First published in Summerset Review.
