Poem: Circles

Not IY


Watch the circles
as the water falls
drop by drop
into the pool –
giving birth to circular ripples
that cross,
cancel out,
make noise,
and occasionally, if they’re lucky
ring true for awhile.
as the storm ends,
into the smooth flat water.

I would walk across that placid surface,
merge myself into that peace,
but the very act
would cause
myriad distortions
across the very peace I crave.

Can I become one
with that stillness,
merge into the calm,
or will my very doing
disrupt the dream?
