It’s snowing golden leaves
while the sun plays tricks with our eyes.
Little bits of color, formed into wood. . .
molecules smell like exploding stars:
tiny nuclear reactions contained in a rainbow.
And it’s always been this way?
A billion pieces of We
on the circuit board of Life.
Take a sip.
This ain’t no Maxwell House.
UPDATE: I collaborated with musician Nancy Pontius to put these words to her beautiful voice and wonderful playing.
