Find It

Dig deep
get your hands
dirty


in cold wet
soil


find the grain
of sand
the speck
of quartz
nestled
next to the invisible
snail’s empty shell

between
thumb and finger
yesterday’s rain

drop trembling
colors
of the quartz
as you hold it
to the sun

untouchable
this refraction
as you search
each shade
for what you hope
to find.
