gathering souls

She captured the souls of
snakes and squirrels and
slugs she said, their soul is
in their eyes. It was her daily
morning worship; gathering the
souls of small critters who had
ventured into her backyard
sanctuary. She collected their
sacrifices with a sole finger,
aperture after clicking aperture.

A true description of a recent meeting with a backyard photographer. Clearly, it struck me as well!
