♫♫ Ponds and Puddles ♫♫

Spring puddle

By Dorothy Aldis

Clouds in a puddle

Fence-posts and trees,

Grasses and clover

Brooded by bees.

Creak on the road-

A brown farm surrey

The warm-cheeked driver soaked in sun,

The horse too old to hurry

Splash goes the wheel-

The horse up to his knees,

Breaking up the clouds and clover,

Scattering the bees,

And spraying silver water.

But the moments after

The puddle gains serenity

Like faces after laughter.

In slip the clouds again;

In slip the trees,

The grasses and clover

Brooded by bees.

Looks cold, cold, cold. Between your poem and Scribe's  the idea of puddles becomes very intriguing,

There is a power in every puddle
that makes our hearts flower,
and attract all that’s favourable,
and truly, serenely memorable. 

Mountains, hills and lakes huddle
to bring forth puddles of the hour
just for Angil, Teresa and friends,
and they share it, though their lens.

And this power of puddles,
once in our hearts, never ends
but grows and ever doubles
as bubbles of blessings, God sent.

So the trekkers never struggle
but give thanks in all events
for the power in their puddles
as they sit on grassy lands,
and share grace from their lens cloud

Basically you've described in a pleasant and creative way this entire post. Kudos for that my dear friend.
