No Ripples - Poem by David Harris

Ripples on still waters,
fuelled by a breeze
distorts the reflections there
like the ripples in our lives
fuelled by dark storm clouds
that tend to pass our way.

With the warming sun
the waters remain still
and all reflections are clear.
The sun in our lives
has no ripples running through them
only smiles and warming dreams.

It's sad that the sun
cannot always shine
and storm clouds
and cold winds
have to torment
our lives and still waters.

    Beautiful poem. Sun cannot always shine, else our days would have been filled with smiles, clouds too are there in our lives to show water can never remain standstill free from any ripples...Truth about life! Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply
