Visions, Breaths & Sighs

Paola Cannas

Paola wrote these beautiful poems at various stages throughout her life. Using freeform verse, she draws the reader into each situation and experience with some of the clarity, depth of vision, gentle affection and spiritual wisdom with which she was gifted. This English version of her work is entirely true to the original version, written in Italian, her native language. "Sweet is the presence of the one who no longer hastens".
