My reflections in the pool of life beckoned to me today.
They implored me to come sit, cajoled & coaxed me to stay.
Happily I perched on a boulder that I spied ashore.
I knew this awakening, my tired soul wanted for sure.
I sat there in calm surrender, breathing all in one sweep.
Then I picked up a stone and cast it, into the water deep.
The ripples that it caused were reminiscent of some memory,
That came crashing back now became a part of my reality.
In the iridescent swell of the ripples, I saw ribbons of my life flash
And in that very moment, I felt my past and present clash.
I closed my eyes then to the remembrance; out came my sigh’s.
I saw even then, a vivid imagery play before my closed eyes.
With a resounding clap like thunder, I knew deep in my senses
That I must arise and go now, go and atone for my offences.
To anyone whom I hurt, caused any harm; my apologies sincere!
From here on I’ll ensure goodness so that my reflections, I can bear.
