Choose a leaf, a single leaf; lime, oak, chestnut, elm
retrieve a memory; first kiss, touch, smile
relive a ritual; birth, youth, death
imagine fire, storm, lightning, water over stone
count the passing moments in 3, 5, 7, 9 time
select a season, a jukebox record
watch it play; a glittering mechanism of movement
know her thoughts, his thoughts, your becoming.
