Paying Attention

When the snow

falls upwards

floating toward

purple

the sky

I will celebrate

all those who

live and take joy

in the living

but when

the squirrels

hide their nuts

in coat pockets

I will mourn

all those lost

never to be found

and when beavers

fix potholes

I will rejoice

with all those

who have found

true love

Please don’t forget

to lay flowers on graves

when hawks fly low

to pay their regrets
