Covered in Sand

I can only see so deeply into this world
It’s as if a layer of sand
Obscures what lies beneath

I reach down, deep
Pull back the sand
To reveal beauty

Or, sometimes
A darkness

I accept both
And keep digging

For there is always more beauty
And, sometimes, a light
Cast upon the darkness

Bluffs above sand dunes
