STONE

Off the pier in Santa Barbara
a young child throws a stone
into the quiet ocean.
Later an imperceptible wave
slips quietly into Yokohama harbor.
In Big Sur a Monarch butterfly
slips from her chrysalis
on tentative gossamer wings
and takes flight.

Later, still,  I stand
on the Boston Commons

and cast a momentary smile.
