The prompt was to write on the image posted below

Ripples on the pond

See tiny ripples spreading across

On the pond that till now

Was reflecting the sky

Is it the gentle, breeze that caused

Or falling leaves

From the brooding branch

Or it’s due to the tireless feet

Of swan’s that look, peaceful from far

That furiously paddle, invisible to the eye

Under the surface, of apparent calm
