I imagined that the
world was an ocean
and I was a creature cast upon the waves,
my motion sending ripples over the sea.

Every thing I did,
every word I said,
was another circle
moving out from me
into the waterscape
to wash upon some
distant shore or person.

So then the questions became,
what was my effect upon the world?
did the waves rippling out from me bring joy to the recipients?
