Like a rock in calm water
Long ago a ripple started off across the cosmos
Born of colossal forces
Unimaginable power
A giant vibration
Nearer the beginning
Bouncing spacetime
Bending geometries
Is gravity’s sea so serene
That eons later
An ear hears just barely
A slight flutter
As a butterfly on wing
Barely a splash across an ocean
A tiny quivering echo lost in time
