Concentric Rings

Pebble tossed into waters deep Ripples awakened… from gentle sleep Concentric rings of force in search Of mossy banks ‘gainst which to lurch And said stone sinks deep… deep To mossy floor watched by perch …then seen no more… Small rock tossed, wraps silt around Then snuggles deep into muddy ground And sudden silence, not a peep! It calmly falls into stony sleep On mossy floor…in water deep To visions of rapids and craggy shore Watched by tadpoles …then seen no more… Pebble tossed into waters dank By chance and fate, and cosmos swept At random picked from rocky bank Like life and Nature’s mysteries kept... By chance and fate, by love and hate We’re children not of choice, but chance… Given only a summary glance To be seen again, no more …no more…
