Ripples


Ripples

Into the illusion of my life:
seen as a quiet pool of existence,
small pebbles of your life's energy, splash.
They excite and churn up the still surface.
Ripples radiate, melding and merging
in concentric joining of cosmic awareness.
Forever more I am awed by the impact
of the solitary moment in time.
Your life became part of my reality
and through me
a part of ripples in other ponds.
With lives entwined we leave our wake
in the vast ocean of humanity
evidence that we were here
and we mattered to each other.

This poem is dedicated with love and gratitude to
Debbie, Shelley, Karen and Dee(Gara)
My first online friends who I met in 2000.
They encouraged me to put my poetry out there for all to read
and inspired me to create my original website "Dee's Home"
As the poem says...they created ripples in my life that will last forever.
