Ripples of Time

The Ripple Effect

—————–

This will be my last post til the weekend.  We are off on a little mountain vacation!

Hope everyone enjoys their families 🙂  Below is the poem!

———————

Pond ripples skate on the surface,

Expanding and drifting..

circling and spinning…

 stretching into infinity…

until they descend below…

deep into the subconscious…

To a place where memories fear…

A spot thickly black…

Stretching and oozing…

filled with dread…

disappointment,

and betrayal…

But don’t worry…

If you push down hard enough…

These bodies will rarely resurface..

Except on those rare, tearful days…

When hope is but a glimmering light…

Calling out on a static filled channel…

at the bottom of an

old..

rusted..

can..

  2. It starts on a happy note and takes a sad tone..beauty of the pond so well put..then the lines move to the disappointment deep inside..well covered..but the pain is always there..deep inside..
