Suddenly I Saw

Suddenly I saw

what I couldn’t see before.

When my gaze was fixed

within, I couldn’t see your

outstretched hand pointing

  to that baby squirrel digging

so determinedly.

Then I heard you ask if I

had joined the squirrel

in a never-ending search

for something below

the surface, something sensed, but

unseen. I looked up and saw.
