Al-Basir: Refreshed Sight

If I narrow my eyes a little
how the Agate Pass echoed
trees and sky yesterday,
and in the mirroring,
hid its deeper secrets
beneath a breathless mask,
each blink I take 
can start seeing anew--
like today
how patches of rain
and little wind-stirred eddies
create an impression of patchy snowfall 
on a piece of smokey glass.
My prayer is simple:
constantly refresh my sight,
that I might be forever seeing Your face
and revel in that revealing.
