Ripples, a chain reaction,
dominoes tripping design in relief,
a smile, a frown,
someone’s joy, someone’s grief.
Turn right, turn left,
move straight ahead,
journeys far-flung from each other,
you’re there, I’m here instead.
A single shift of the eyes,
a sideways glance,
I missed something, saw another,
changed the fortunes of chance.
