Another non-rhyming piece. I really like using this fountain pen.
The universe is a pond.
The simple act of a wish creates a ripple.
Small actions ripple outward.
Who knows how far it will go?
I have an outcome in mind.
I dare not wish for it. Not directly.
So I’ll create a ripple.
Guide my sails so that I may create that outcome.
Give my two hands the strength to build.
Give me the spark to create.
But most of all, grant me the wisdom to see my path.
