Digging Out the Daisies

. . . Dug into the dark region

between an old forsythia

and a yew planted to hide

the elbows of rusty pipes,

they risk everything to find . . .

a new communion.

–Excerpt from “Digging Out the Daisies” in Edges by Donna Pucciani (Purple Flag, Chicago, 2016). Published in Hawaii Pacific Review and The Cresset.

Garden Globe

from Garden Globe

. . . . Sitting blind and still, unflinching

in heavy weather, ego long since forgotten,

it captures all of life around it and,

part philosopher, part magus, folds

existence into its own special planet.

–excerpt from “Garden Globe” in To Sip Darjeeling at Dawn by Donna Pucciani (Virtual Artists Collective 2011). First published in Pennine Ink.
