lift nose to breeze, face to sun
rustle leaves, greet squirrels, bid fare-thee-well to geese
feel grateful, feel open wide, feel hopeful and free
think: this is what glorious feels like
collect treasures, nature’s loose parts
colors, textures, leaves, nuts and needles, berries and branches
tuck pleasures into pockets
outside smells follow inside
pink cheeks, fresh-air ruffled hair
admire wealth spread across a tabletop
acknowledge time and its impermanence
arrange the bounty, the beauty
partner colors, plop berries just so, fan pine needles, nestle nuts
please the eye, pleasure the soul
focus the camera
freeze time and memory
of gathering fall one October morning
