I peer into the garden pool
dip my finger and stir its surface
as if it were my thoughts

I cannot see myself, well
a rippled face and distorted life
unsettled waters reflect me

I gaze up and peer all around
the center of the universe
where my hands plant in the earth

I look back into the pool
in the now calm waters, I see a man
with a rippled face and concerned look

relax, take a deep breath, reboot and exhale
open my eyes and accept what I see
a reflection of me

tranquility settles with-in my mind
when the Koi come near
looking to be fed
