A thin blanket of snow covers the pond
concealing the secret lives of fish.

Mountains beyond Mountains

You may recognize the mountain by name or shape
but to truly know her is to walk the contours of her mass,
to watch her reveal the secrets of the seasons,
to remember and to feel the spirits of all the other feet
who have touched her and whose hearts have found home.


Every evening as day departs
the sky reveals a secret
about the passage of time.
