Meditation

We are meditating
On the embracing
love of God--

a covered bridge--
like the one
near this place,
but more gray-white,
like the winter day it is--

with life in the river
rushing under,
downstream
where three fly fisherman
stood earlier today
casting for winter trout--

the old bridge is dry
and safe--
it crosses over,
envelopes the cars
that roll through
one by one--

is this love
the image of the bridge,
wrapped up
in its century-old oak beams--
or is it
the reckless water
that runs beneath?
