Ripples At Clearlake

By the lakeshore
the ducks scoot
along,
making their
way in life.

As they huddle
closely together;

they resemble
my family.

Our proximity is
felt-

with the ripples
that we create,
which
are quiet and
faint.

Just enough
movement
is discerned,
to distinguish
one from
another.

As we happily
move along;

together in
this journey
called
life.
