Ripple Effect

I never expected one indiscretion to have such an impact.  It wasn’t such a big deal.  Or so I thought.  But I’ve caused a wave of upheaval.  The consequences continuously spread out with tension and conflict undulating at the surface.   So much more than a disappointing five minutes deserves.

      Thank you Linda, glad you liked it.

  1. Great matching of story with the image, and so much depth with so few words.

      The story came to me as soon as I focused on the ripples (originally I thought it might be about shadows).

  2. brilliant use of watery words and allusions to the ripple effect of actions and consequences

      Thanks, I’m glad you liked it. I have to be careful not to overdue the metaphor – I’m glad it worked this time

      Thanks, it took me a long time to take that photo – the sun kept going behind the clouds.

  3. Am drawn by the image. The last line made me chuckle. It is the truth of a lot of my entire life.

      That line was my favourite too. Thanks for commenting.
