forest for the trees means
we are on the ground,
in the thick of it. when you are lost,
may you find, if not a sign,
then prints in the snow,
a path to follow.
if not a path, may you find faith
that others came before you,
and you are not alone.
but if not faith, may you find courage
to keep going, moving forward
until you come upon a clearing,
until the way is clear.
