Ripples at the surface


For visually challenged writers, the image shows a peaceful lake with calm blue skies, yet near the waterside is a huge ripple.


A stone plopped from the shore

Or a gentle breeze blowing over water

Creating ripples on the still surface

Small waves moving outwards to the shore

In the calm of life, many things can create waves

Some are major while others are just minor irritations

If we let every annoyance disrupt our peace

We will always live on tenterhooks of stress

Learn from the rest of the water which stays calm

Even when ripples are being created in one part of it

  1. Beautifully said, Sadje! Now I want to be on the water in my kayak…allowing the rhythm of the ripples rocking me gently to sooth everything inside 💞💞💞

      1. The lake was like glass yesterday and made me long to be out there…but it’s only 43F this morning and the ice recently left the lake…so it will be a while before I grab the paddle 💞
