awareness in front of me
leaves falling off the tree
trucks rolling by
workers hammering siding on the building next door

awareness behind me
a winter arrangement of pine, usnea, and a wasp nest

expanding awareness
five pheasants
six chickens
three blue jays
tens of finches at the bird feeder
and a few favorite chickadees

a herd of deer in the pasture

awareness above
a ferruginous hawk
landed in the cottonwood with stars hidden in its branches

grey sky filled with clouds
yet the slingshot of consciousness flew past Mars

awareness below
Earth prepares for a long winter’s sleep
