Will it calm again?

The water Ripples
Its reflection is blemished
It will calm again

A mirror shatters
Its reflectoin is destroyed
It won't calm again

A life changes course
Its reflection confusing
will it calm again?

This whole poem had great imagery!! This is probably one of the best haikus I had ever read. At first, it seemed like every other haiku I read on here, but then I reflected on it and tried to understand the real meaning. Great Job. :)

Beautiful! I Love It:]

Id like to think we are like the water in your poem. The ripples on top will calm but the rock that made them leaves an impression in the sand underneath.

Awww... I sure hope it calms again.

Great poem... really touching, speaks to me, and makes me want to read it again and again.

Think up endless possibilies of what it could me. So many different perspectives could be taken... philosophical, maybe?
