Ripples


Ripples by T.L. Eastman 2010


Drip, drop, plop.
Drip, drop, plop.
Water drips from the faucet.
Annoyance builds with each "op" sound that splatters
into the aluminum double sink.
This drip just has to stop.

Drip, drop, plop.
Drip, drop, plop.
Water trickles down the creek bed.
It dances around rocks, plays with crayfish, and rests in algae green pools.
This drip we long to watch.

Drip, drop, plop.
Drip, drop, plop.
Hands reach out to embrace the face that tries to hold back the rush; but
the dam is broken, and tearful emotion has everywhere to escape.
These two embrace and are washed in the flood that falls from each one's face.
There is no shame in the shelter of this place.

Don't mind the
drip, drop, plop.
drip, drop, plop.
This river is one that love sought.

Hi,

I was looking through profiles which match my same likes and I discovered your blog. I like your site, I think you are very unique in your posts and I like it.

Would you come and visit my art blog? Its not a professional art site, but I try to post labels of all sorts of expressionism.

So what do you think? If you follow me, I will follow you... :)

Well I hope to hear from you soon.

Jesse
