only 15 minutes
that walk from work to uni
but it was a precious 15 minutes
i imagined that i had someone by the hand who couldn’t see the little pieces of perfect beauty which are everywhere
and as i walked i showed them. pointed them out.
i could feel their heart expand.
it was a way of opening and shining a light into my own blindness.
as i walked up the hill
the afternoon light was orange golden
it rippled over the fallen autumn leaves
a hillside of cascading light and leaves
the light at the top of the hill made the sky vivid blue
the lawns became lime green
trees framed the views perfectly
my shadow fell solid on the earth
and everything was perfect
