RIPPLE

 

From nothing, a ripple forms.

Water crinkles like tissue

paper

(an embryo is born).

Then, like a fist unclenching,

the ripple widens its circle,

relaxing and growing wider.

In abandon, it releases all

restraint,

grows wider and wider,

not aware of its short life.

Too late it merges with

the great expanse of water,

nullified in the greater

cosmos.
