A Ripple

Standing on the edge of forever
Looking into the face of eternity
Over the roar of emotional thunder
Comes a wave of hopeful serenity

Cast a thought, watch it fall
Engulfed in total darkness
Thoughts are invisible to the eye
Alone in life’s consuming starkness

Like a single floating snowflake from heaven
Stillness, not a flutter of sound is heard
Quietly, everyone awaits what follows
Anticipating the escalating blizzard

Imagine a small circle moving outward
Acquiring energy, amassing size
Rolling over whatever is near
A ripple is a solitary giant in disguise
