Rhyme’s ripples


Words spread out in ripples

Crescents reaching far out,

Touching minds and hearts,

Under-water dark currents.

Mysterious and trembling,

Reverberating in rhyme.

Who knows the impact

Of one pebble tossed in

As it echoes downstream?

As waves become torrents

And destruction looms near

We hope words lend good cheer

No wounded hearts, left in despair
