Ripples upon
ripples upon
ever more ripples.

Seemingly on a
forward march,
gliding and swirling
each at their own pace.
But to what end
for them?

Will they grow tired
and one day cease
to stride onward?
There’s not a soul
who knows.

Stumbling upon
each Other like
friends of old.

Grasping and feeling
their way around
in this vast expanse.

Though all of
one species,
one kind —
each a unique
piece of art with
their own
identity.

The time, alas,
has come again
for the world to
go to sleep.

The moon peaks in
her face of beauty,
with eyes like
shining opals.
Keeping a caring
and watchful gaze
on her
beloved child.

She gently cradles her
back and forth,
as the child drifts
into space.
Humming a hymn of
ebbs and flows…
hushing the child
in rhythmic waves.

For the sun has given
his all today.
Showering this one
with everything
he could give —
the warmth of a blazing fire,
and the grace
of a candle’s flame.

The two souls
pirouette each other,
sharing a gaze of
harmony and light.
With the earth, their dearest child,
resting gently
in their laps.

Daffodils sway to a leisurely dance,
sighing and breathing
by life’s serendipitous force.
Though droplets plunge down
for a time,
The music continues.
A song and dance that
can’t be helped —
a waltz of serenity.
One that decorates the arduous road
of this journey.
With heads and leaves held high,
they know that
each cloud teaches a new lesson.
For just dancing side by side,
they are now
content and well
under the midsummer’s sun.
