Ripple eyes

3D imagery flows inside my minds eyes
Rippling like a sonic wave from the earth
To the devine and those of thine
Waves of skaters flow and glide
Making faded flowers their bride
Ruffling feathers touch the ground
Until eternal sound is found
Reaching out to tender fold
Flocking skies like heaven above
Streaming sparklers of colour looming end
To natures bloom
Trickling waters held within
A lake of fireflies glistening still the night.
