Ancient

Smooth rings
Rippled out
From the stone dropped
While I stood on the bridge
Waiting for you.

All the crows
Rose and flew
To a farther field
Beyond my sight.
The air fled too.

Dizzy
With the thrum of absence,
I saw the pond grow
Calm again.
I forgot for a moment
Why I stood there

And never knew why
The sky grew dark.
