Flocci Volitantes: A Metaphysical Mystery – Yuan Changming

Drifting like broken shadows

Are the floaters illusionary
Fragments of last night
Or shredded shadows
Of my own protobeing?

How often am I tempted
To catch one of them
With my inner hands!

Yuan Changming hails with Allen Yuan from poetrypacific.blogspot.ca. Credits include eleven Pushcart nominations, nine chapbooks as well as publications in Best of the Best Canadian Poetry (2008-17), & BestNewPoemsOnline, among others.
