Ordinary Sugar

“Poetry heals the wounds inflicted by reason.” – Novalis

“Ordinary sugar coaxed to its epiphany.” – Amanda Gunn

The power of poetry to transform.
The dance of words to delight.
The pause to witness, acknowledge, embrace.
Ordinary to epiphany.
Daily life.
Satisfied in the weeding, watering, tending, growing.
May the prose of today give you peace, grace and joy.
Enter the poem.
Sometimes, sweet as sugar.

“She’d mastered,
in a life, how to grow
a winter meal, to till, to weed,
to water, to tend, learned how,
I hope, to be satisfied.” – Amanda Gunn
