Ripples - A Poem


It seems like a smooth disturbance,

spreading far and wide

with culminating circles.

A pebble fallen into the water,

and gone creating a parametrized speech,

with a hundred ripples following

far and wide. .

A part of the lake is disturbed

with a sudden mighty throw,

and ripples reach the other end

for restlessness follows.

It seems like a smooth disturbance

spreading far and wide,

for one does not know

it's puissant tide.

It is indeed powerful. I always like watching ripples and it’s spread. One of my favorite songs in fact is called Ripple by the Grateful Dead.
