Stones & Ripples

Standard

Memories wait
hiding round corners
in the shadows
and the sunlight

They rise up
unasked for
as the simple stones
of everyday moments
cast rippling patterns
on the surface of the day

They give me pause
each time they appear
bringing the past back
for a fleeting moment
or for hours

But whether the memories
are the stones
or the ripples
they make me smile
as often as they make me sad
so I welcome them all
