From a point, radiating out

circling and spreading afar

a thought, a sublime one

for you and some for me

resonate and carry through

hiding and surfacing

mingling and meandering

through weeds and lotus leaves

then back to me, centering

catching and sending it too

they are all but mine

and some of yours…

    this poem remind me of a classic calculus problem that ask to find the rate at witch the radius of the circle from when a rock is thrown into water. anyway, this is unrelated to this. very nice poem !

  15. claudia says:

    loved the image you created with your poem – the ripples of life – thoughts that spread…beautiful

  16. Gay Cannon says:

    Yes I too thought of the ripples in a pond and the way one thing excites another as our poems excite one another. Lovely metaphor and your poem is beautifully imagistic. Thank you. gay

  17. willow says:

    Delicious mingling and meandering.

  18. Patty Sherry says:

    I love the image and the “life” you bring to thoughts…hiding and surfacing, mingling and meandering. I love the image of two peoples thoughts resonating with each other in that moment of connection.

    I also love the picture you have with the rippling water, it’s beautiful and fits so well with this piece.

  19. pattiken says:

    Lovely, so restful floating on your words.
