DIGGING ROOTS
(12/13/18)


we search
for reality

under
a microscope
in a lab

through
a telescope
to space

chemical
reactions

mathematical
equations

mapping
genomes

charting
galaxies

when perhaps
the most effective
method
may be
kneeling
in the dirt

slowly
stripping away
the layers

feeling

smelling
the soil
as we go

getting
deeper

finding
nothing

finding
everything

realizing
that every
answer
for which
we could hope
is in every
movement

in each
moment

solving
ourselves
with
ourselves

being happy
within
our eventual
holes
