Will it calm again?

The water Ripples
Its reflection is blemished
It will calm again

A mirror shatters
Its reflectoin is destroyed
It won't calm again

A life changes course
Its reflection confusing
will it calm again?

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

WOW that's sublime!.. I love the depth. Amazing Haiku....Maybe check out some of mine?

This whole poem had great imagery!! This is probably one of the best haikus I had ever read. At first, it seemed like every other haiku I read on here, but then I reflected on it and tried to understand the real meaning. Great Job. :)

Id like to think we are like the water in your poem. The ripples on top will calm but the rock that made them leaves an impression in the sand underneath.

"People believe that if we really want to eliminate something, focus on that. How much sense does it make for us to give the particular problem all of the energy, as opposed to focusing on trust, love, living in abundance, education, or peace? -Un.

Awww... I sure hope it calms again.

Great poem... really touching, speaks to me, and makes me want to read it again and again.

Think up endless possibilies of what it could me. So many different perspectives could be taken... philosophical, maybe?
