people go along
along they go
making marks
upon marks
pushing growth
into dirt
in the way
from here to there
from there to here

leaving traces of themselves
for others to discover
reap the benefits,
and add to the mix

The marks
the traces
to sprout
adding growth
adding life

count the traces
like tree rings
so many years,
for experience,
each one
bringing us
round again,
starting point
to stopping point:

full circle now
into the arms
of One
Who began it all
