All It Beholds: Birthday Weekend Part One

Let the eye enlarge
with all it beholds.
I want to celebrate
color, how one red leaf
flickers like a match
held to a dry branch,
and the whole world goes up
in orange and gold. - Linda Pastan (Autumn)






















It was my birthday weekend and there was the hayride to the pumpkin patch...

















beauty alighting everywhere...

















"and one more for our spirit cat", he said...






















then the swift passing rain shower that blew across the blackberries...

















and over the barns...






















until the sun poked through and sparkled the bejeweled grass, to the delight of the chickens...

















and the wee little piggy who likes to be scratched...






















and the boy who loves all of this...






















and pans for fossils...






















and celebrates the seasons, the moments, the colors, this earth, this life.
