Favorite Season

I get to walk on jigsaw puzzles
in my favorite season.

Always footward my eyes
dart from piece to piece,
dream carpets and puzzles turning
brown, pumpkin, cranberry, gold
coin collections rusted,
Chinese fans and willow tears
silverfish, almond husks,
chestnut leathers,
open palms tan,
Japanese lacquer paints,
cantaloupe crescents,
pear skins and flesh
cedar slivers,
Miro designs,
crystallized citrus peels:
grapefruit, orange, lemon.

In my favorite season
the sun comes from the ground.
