The Divers

These puddles gather—like pools of reality—in mud, in gutters, on rooftops and hat brims.

On grey, windy mornings, men sometimes rain down from the sky like divers into these heavenly reflections.

Occasionally you will find them crumpled in alleys and hallways, broken in the corners of kitchens and showers.

They’ll tell you they know that puddles are not pools. But on grey, windy mornings they dive just the same.

Forgive me if I always like to express anything that shines in my mind after being spotlighted by your words.

You lead people - or even drive them away - to see what they ignore. Of course to awaken them.

Ya I think, many people, indeed, have chosen to fall in a muddy puddle. They have been deceived by the "terrible" heavenly reflection. Once they realized it was not the ideal pool - when it was too late and there was no way back. Poor divers!. Then from the dimly lit places where they are full of the facts that burn their dreams, they end up having to accept anything. Yes it is exactly like the pools of reality that do not always contain the things that are loved.

Standing in front of your words, I like seeing the streets where they came from.

Cool... Puddles come from rain, and rain always leads us to memories :)

Rain can be very nostalgic, can't it. The way the air feels, the way the rain sounds, etc. can build some strong associations within and between our senses.
