Puddle, 1952, M. C. Escher

The Puddle

Muddy puddle
Reflecting sky
People walking through
People walking by.

So goes our life
Reflecting above and below
Where people trod
To and fro.

Leaving tracks
Upon our heart
The people we pass
Do leave their mark.

This is just beautiful indeed - That last verse says it all - "Leaving tracks - Upon our heart, The people we pass- Do leave their mark." We all leave tracks as we trod through life - some are meant to linger a while, while others plod on. Just NICE.

The rhyme and the rhythm of your poem traveled like footsteps for me until I came to the verse at the end, where the "tracks upon our hearts" captured mine. Thank you for sharing this memorable poem, Gail. =D
