the rushing stream, the pond lies
in stillness waiting

My pebble lands hard
On the pond’s silent surface
Ripples lap the shore

The seconds tick by,
one by one: as the sand in
the hour-glass flows

This moment won’t last
Make a memory, here, now
Change is on the way

Spinning round in the light breeze
Drifting down to earth

Confusion swirling
Hazy days and crazy nights
They fade as we watch

We wonder and wait
As worried thoughts circulate
Answers come slowly

Hope offers solace
A brief respite from despair
How will it all end?
