INSTRUCTIONS

Leave your cell phone, your watch

and your thoughts

on the kitchen table.

 

Walk slowly. Leave the trail

to follow a scent

or to follow a bird’s refrain.

 

Listen for the stirrings

in the underbrush.

 

Notice what grows at your feet,

the puzzle-pieces of the sky

and what the light reveals.

Cast out your gaze like a net

and take everything in

 

every intricate detail,

each small astonishment.
