Pear Blossom and Cherry Blossom after Mandelstam
by Susan Kelly-DeWitt

Pear blossom and cherry blossom argue with me.
Their wisdom is ephemeral but they convince.

Wheels of good fortune, they coalesce;
Milky Ways among galaxies of branches.

Floret light and human light, our atoms
embrace. Filament wicks fire up; blink

alive like splintered sunlight. Anther-lanterns blast
apart. Some truth inside us changes shape,

roots itself elsewhere. Every truth has at least
nine lives, my ananthous bee-soul instructs.
