In the footprint of

thousands, stilled, in flowing streams,

memories run full.

Under bright blue sky

a glimpse taken of past, in

Future, gut clenches,

As seventeen nine

Elevens paused, marked, held up

but so little change.

Honoured to trace steps

accepting pieces meld, and

Life goes on, re-made.
