Inward being

Snow covers the branches,
covers the ground.
But it doesn’t hide the earth,
it is the earth.
As the snow covers
grasses waiting beneath it
the grasses cover soil,
the soil covers bugs and microbes
which cover roots
over layers of earth
over the water table,
where the snow will go…
Nothing is a cover. All of it is part.
Look beneath the visible.

           You desire truth in the inward being,
           therefore teach me wisdom in my secret heart.
                           —Psalm 51.6

Weather Report

Low visibility,
thick clouds, blankets of snow,
heavy fog,
and all manner of obscurity,
all of which, as much as solid stone,
is certainly true.
