Ripples in the Stillness of the Sky

Watching the full spring moon

Travel across the southern sky

Progress visible behind

The leafless branches

Moving quickly to escape

Any rays of the sun

It's face smiling

Ripples In The Stillness

(Day 4- A Haiku story)

Shaded profile stands

Alone on a dry dock. 'Squawk',

Shrills a nesting bird

Glen Lake surface sighs,

Basking in the setting sun;

Glows in nature's garb

Lifted from the sand,

Smooth, round and evenly flat-

Glossy beige pebble

Ready? At the calm,

Posed profile skips the pebble

On the sleeping lake

Three hushed gasps echo

As concentric rings shudder

Out, on the water.

April 4th – Ripples in the Stillness

Our presence causes ripples in the stillness of the earth

Our being here involves a cycle evolving to death from birth

Such chaos as we contemplate our purpose and our worth

If only our main goal were to promote positivity and mirth

Selfish ways would not cause ripples in the stillness of the earth

Ripples In The Stream

Sometimes in the night

Calm, silky, inky-black air

Stolen by sirens.
