by Angela Hoffman

Tan, dull, pinhead fungi placed among the stagnant 
take their time in bringing forth life.  
The listless stop their ineffective feeding off themselves
in their endless search for something more. 
Slowly, there is movement 
community feeding off of each other 
a life-giving breath 
bubbling into a holy, honest, whole. 
With spiritual simplicity, all are lifted, raised 
to be broken and shared  
once over. 

Angela Hoffman lives in Wisconsin.
