Poetry: Empty Circles

Floating boats on a mirage of darkness. I saw this really cool, free public picture of leaves floating on water. Thought I would add an artsy effect for this nature picture. Hope you enjoy the digital art and its effectiveness in the words of this Tanka Verse.

Empty Circles

Emptiness…is like
a dark pond. Toss a pebble
into its abyss,
plunk, and then silence returns
ripples and fading circles.
