Lucilla Trapazzo

ANTHOZOA

It takes the luminous grace of the coral

in the art of letting go.

You close your eyes and then open your hand

in the  surrender

until the seed falls down

undergoing symbiotic metamorphosis:

from animal to flower

embedded.

Then we fade away.

It takes of faith the bright

sound. After all, it takes only

love.
