Watching the Ripples Radiate.
Author: marshalg

Chapter 176
























For Abner, meticulous man of words.


Image mirrored on the water

Living creatures slide below,

Oblivious to light refraction

Blinded to reflection's show.


Patterns shimmer in the ripples

Light is dancing through the flow,

Images in moving water

Colors merge and visuals grow.


Sunshine sparkles off the wavelets

Glistening as do pearls on ink,

Shimmering of morning breeze

Cause brittle leaves to fall and sink.


A stillness in the afternoon

The summer air hangs hot and low

Rich golden tones of setting sun

Reflection's bronze striation's glow.


Coolness of the night descending

Myriad's' of stars appear,

Ribboned light of starlight blending

Through the surge of wavelets near.


Vastness in the dead of night

Across the ocean's heaving dance,

Moonlight showers shards of light

To silver water's wide expanse.
