It’s just a subtle movement
Where water kisses air
I only have to close my eyes
And instantly I’m there

Some days its pure reflection
A surface just like glass
A brief and special moment
That all too soon will pass

Other days the winds are strong
The water comes alive
I’m happy just to sit and watch
And know it’s worth the drive

Know it’s always changing
But the ingredients are the same
The wind and water together
Almost seem to call your name

Notice the Ripples is an inspirational poem by Robert Longley.  It was originally written in memory of
2LT Tobias C. Alexander who was killed May 20, 2012.   It’s about noticing the little things.  There’s more going on in our world that we often overlook.  Take the time to see how nature provides a performance for us all the time.
