Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week were motion, peaceful and vision.
Reflections on a pond.
On a good day, a pond can be
Smooth, comfortable, contained.
But this is not the normal state of a pond.
Or of a life.
Into the peaceful lagoon of life,
The gods may throw pebbles, small or large,
That set in motion ripples,
Waves that move and interact,
Where they fall and how they impact
Is totally beyond prediction.
The vision that we have for our day
As we make the first coffee of the morning
May bear no resemblance to the memories
We are left with as we sit with our last
And reflect on our day.
Or on our lives.
