What Effects You? #haiku #photography #poem

candle lit music

the baton is raised

one in a series we play

fingers steady

autumn ripples

cast the first stone

lives touched beyond my reach

ripple effects

Everything we do, even the slightest thing we do, can have a ripple effect and repercussions that emanate. If you throw a pebble into the water in one side of the ocean, it can create a tidal wave on the other side.

~Victor Webster

The last prompt for Chevrefeuille’s Carpe Diem 2 year anniversary is Movement. A vast topic to be sure.

Ripples of Life #poetry #photography #lifeslessons

Can you really experience the ups in life without have lived in the downs?

You have to fall in love

and lose it

to really know love at all

you have to wish on a star

and hold it

to understand that stars fall

you have to give

with your whole heart

in order to embrace the weak and small

you have to be pierced

through the middle

to understand the power of pain

you have to live life

to the fullest

to understand loss and gain

you have to throw caution

to the four winds

to dance with life’s love in the rain
