by Deborah DeNicola


To wake without the hands of tomorrow’s clock,

the words of yesterday’s narration, the whole heft

of the personal—Poof—snockered away!  Remains

of a morning shower, flecks of water where rain was.

Then growth. A hibiscus of infinite petals, stamen

and stems. Fragrant, extended seconds of presence—


Would that you were God, the conscious

creator in each apprehended linear segment . . . yes.

To do the minutia without worry in your own kitchen!

As Zen says: When you sweep, sweep. Oh the mercy, the ghostly

alchemy of not thinking. All one undoing of everything

in the mind. So to do without is more, is most.



Deborah DeNicola’s spiritual memoir, The Future That Brought Her Here, was recently released from Nicholas Hays/Ibis Press. A second full collection of poetry, Original Human, is forthcoming in 2010 from WordTech Press. Deborah edited the anthology Orpheus & Company; Contemporary Poems on Greek Mythology, from The University Press of New England.
