“…forget not all God’s benefits.” —Psalm 103:2

a vine—
red leaves

a wire—
two crows

lavender floret—
purple scent
clings to my fingers

damp drizzle—
magenta dahlias
stretch petals to catch rain

saffron, crimson, scarlet—
fallen leaves
carpet sidewalk

a single motion—
knees, hips, back
bend, arms
scoop, lift, toss

dying leaves
flutter down
kiss my face
blaze brightness
against the gray
