In your ever-changing waters,
I see blue skies. On other days, storm
clouds gather, as in the depths of my soul.
Such stillness is ripe with life.
Toss a pebble, ripples flow outward.
They expand, and journey towards
far reaches of pond. These circles bobble,
bounce amid whites, dark blues, greens.
Dew-laden leaves are lavish. A cool mist
rises from the pond, as light breezes
murmur. Scents from flowers
permeate atmosphere, exudes lushness.
Nature encircles in comfort, and I breathe
deeply while butterflies flit, bees pollinate.
Willow branches sway on the bank
of destiny amid sweet joys of tomorrow!
