thinking of a pebble

am i thinking of a pebble
when i think of ripples?
rings concetric that widenlarge,
when i think of ripples…
am i thinking of a pebble?

do not forget to thank huygens,
when you think of ripples,
watery haloes within haloes, ad nauseam…
when you think of ripples,
do not forget to thank huygens.

when a pebble skips the surface,
we have a succession of ripples –
like a single act rippling more than once –
we have a succession of ripples
when a pebble skips the surface.

the pebble must drown
to produce the ripples,
ironic that the source never sees its labors’ fruits –
for to produce the ripples,
the pebble must drown.

don’t ask me then why i must leave,
just when the harvest is greatest –
i have filled my purpose, and done my time –
so today, when the harvest is greatest,
please don’t ask me why i must leave.
