The Many Meanings of a Cell

A poem of mine, "Lectio," is up at the current issue of The Innisfree Poetry Journal, an online journal. Go here to read it.

I got the idea for this poem when I was last at Mepkin Abbey. I read a brochure that asked us to consider turning our cell phones off--not just to vibrate, but completely off. The word cell leapt off the page, and I immediately thought of the biological definition. Since I was at an abbey, I also thought of the definition associated with monasteries and abbeys. This poem was one of those that came easily to me. Enjoy!
