Ripples

 

Calm and still,

The glassy lake,

Like a mirror

Under moonlight.

Silent!

Serene!

No sound,

No movement

Just

Tranquil

Peace.

 

A stone drops,

A pebble,

And the glass breaks,

Shatters

In to

Ripples

That spread

From the centre

All the way

To the

Edge.

 

Tranquility

Broken

By shards

Of stone,

Movement

Disrupting

Passive

Stagnation

To

Undulating

Chaos.

 

Restless

Stirring

Slows

To stillness

Once

Again

As glass

Takes hold

Once

More.
