Ripples (poem)

Updated on December 18, 2014

Words pass under the bridge

Ripples of once use to be

As lovers meet in the sunshine

Following scent of a kiss

-

The glow of the flow there beneath them

This mirror of lovers divine

What perfection has brought them together

To form this moment’s music

-

Was it the gentle clouds

Which wrote their dreams across the sky

Was it the flowers

Which fashion forever with their lingering scent

-

Or was it the water

Shimmering glimmering hope of tomorrow

Streaming toward the endless sea

Gleaming in feelings unspoken

-

Words pass over the bridge

As seasons try to free the heart

Echoing flames of confusion

Of what once meant not at all

-

And once again a leaf is broken

As the lovers go their way

Timelessly floating it meets the water

Forming ripples used to be

      Thank you my nightly dose of poetic medicine, Mhatter99. So beautifully done as you speak of the passing of a couple's love. I hope you're feeling better these days. Peace to you for continued healing and writing.

      A beautiful facsimile of passing love.

      Seemingly it did not die, it only faded away.

      Nicely done, Martin.

      Martin, I just sit here lame. But I marvel at your deliverance of full life in the work you do. I just am not worthy to be blessed by your great work.

      Beautiful poem and the photo at the beginning is just right, too.

      Mmmmm...

      does it really matter what brought them together? They're so lucky to have found each other...
