I was inspired by the rippling of water today so I thought I would get this out and up.

Black and white
Falling, dropping,
Cascading down
One after another
See the lines
They tumble
Just the same
As those before
History repeats
Like ripples
Of a stone
Tossed into a lake
Dominoes
Chasing each other
Down the twisting path
Into eternity
Children’s toys
Or sophisticated game?
Either way
It ends the same
Like fallen soldiers
Unable to rise
So can not the stone
Left to drown and die
This does that
That does this
This does that
That does this
Always repeating
Never fleeting
Into the darkness
It is thrust
Pebbles causing ripples
Wood pushing wood
To the future
From the past
Never ceasing
Never leaving
Never resting
Never fading
