what remains

surprises of treasure to awaken

now comes the time of the aweful shedding
releasing what once held close as faded jeans
and finding bare the places where you hid
like the sometimes running arroyo waters
shift the light and ever changing sands and stone
carves out another path of unexplored time
where dogs run smiling, chasing quail feathers
the emptiness, a gift exchange for what remains
so grace may light the way through the cracks
to find truth once sleeping on the other side.
