Ripples


Ripples

The water ripples.
Circle after circle
appears well after
the stone hits.
They continue to
disturb the stillness
farther and farther
from the point of
initial contact.
One action,
many ripples.
It will be
a long time
before calm 
is restored.

  1. I like the idea of the ripples and the continuous circle of action. Your poetry is succinct and descriptive Michelle.
