* a cat unfurling its body into a langorous stretch

* poseable wood manikins dancing across shelf-tops

* rebounding foliage from a sharply pruned rosebush

* sunlight through windows replacing gray-white skies

* red balloons

* the clear blankness of an infant’s stare

* anyone who makes a face to crack up a baby

* a field of untouched snow

* a giant box of crayons

* a mandala

* unashamedly lined faces of aging women

* antique watches

* a wheel of cheese

* empty beaches

* reddening Japanese maples

* a girl writing in a blank book

* the faces of pallbearers at a funeral

* a weaver at a loom

* broken-in beat-up soft brown boots

* real (not drawn-on) eyebrows

* breasts without artifice

* an unwavering candle flame

* a singer on a stool with a guitar

* a blank canvas

* a brush loaded with paint

* the curlicues of sweetpeas

* the smell of peanut butter on toast

* first visible breath of winter

* a just-opened deck of cards

* asymmetrical body parts

* thunder clouds

* broken and unbroken sand dollars

* a lunar eclipse

* an empty stage in an old theater

* and old house with a fresh coat of paint

* imperfect teeth

* kids playing marbles instead of video games

* unfinished furniture

* ragged laughter

* anybody with a hula hoop

* pictures from outer space

* mashed potatos and gravy

* See’s candy Scotchmallows

* cricket-song

* the feel of flannel sheets

* new-book smell 

* hot chocolate with marshmallows

* stained glass anything

* a prayer

* daylight

* your face

* your breath

* now
