-Rippled Stagnant Pools-

Written by: Christopher Stopford

Ripples in stagnant pond
as circles of light 
is absorbed by fern and frond
and as wave-lets are put to flight.

Ripples in stagnant pond
no escaping the boundaries set
as radiance reflects upon
where creation entrapment walls are met.

Ripples in stagnant pond
as thoughts enmeshed
 and extending beyond
to it's outer wall to be dashed.

Ripples in stagnant pond
wanting itself to free
from it's murky bond
to stream and river in glee.
