One Year Ago Today: Ripples

water falls steady
drop by
drop
over smooth stones
weathered
soft gray
and white
into the still
black pool
they create
ever widening circles
on the mirrored surface
lap at my bare legs
pull at my hem
with surprising strength
I feel the moon’s gravity
in the ripples’ greedy hunger
seeking to drag me under
engulf me
until my edges blur
and I lose meaning
