Circles Upon Circles

Photo of part of a water basin, with circular ripples in the water caused by raindrops.

Raindrops plip
on the circular basin
of water
(if there’s a fountain,
it’s not turned on).

Each drop
creates a
circular ripple,
and the
ripples
intersect:
constant 
small medium large
ripples
interlock
then vanish.

Like temporary voices
whispering secrets
of what the clouds
have seen.

We need to
listen closely,
or else
the whispers
will vanish
unheard.
