A tranquil pond that’s glassy smooth
has surface tensioned skin un-grooved.
No creases spoil its surface layer
when peace and stillness fill the air.
Then one disturbance, pebble’s plop
an insect’s hop or stray raindrop,
creates a pattern we’ve just traced
to forces found in outer space.
Rippled wrinkles, round ornate
make circled waves that radiate
while rising, falling with the force
of gravity, which holds their course.
Space-time’s fabric will behave
in similar ways through gravity waves.
This rippled force from far beyond
makes patterns like our little pond.

Contemplating the topic Secret Spaces makes me think of my own wrinkles! Oh and ripples in fabric, water and space. What could be hiding within those folds? Scientists confirm there are such things as GRAVITY WAVES. These spaces were so secret they went un-detected until only recently.
