a life is like a pebble
thrown into a pool
the water ripples
then becomes still

a breeze whispers
blowing past unheard
a wisp of motion
creating sudden waves

a life floats by
reflected in a mirror
of water in liquid flow
becoming a shadow

a cloud floats past
the sun in silouhette
rolling as water
over the face of sky

the earth cools
as the warmth fades
then returns as rays
shine unobscured brightly

the water still
again awaits the motion
the return of a pebble
thrown into the void

a ripple recurs
now becoming a circle
not a solid mass
merely a wispy phantom

a pebble in the night
makes no noise unseen
the still is constant
awaiting the eye

a light reappears
reborn it returns
reflecting like liquid
motions waving clearly

a pebble is thrown
creating ripples eternal
water endless still
momentarily becomes life
