A bipedal loopiness

I decided to play
in the water today:
sometimes I just love
to examine reflections,
to seek out the colors,
the shapes, and the traces
of thoughts that show up
in the curves and the faces.
Like water, I, too,
especially when still,
take on, in reflecting
the things and the people
that move 'round my edges,
odd expressions and characters;
a certain bipedal loopiness
(though I make it my own)
that echoes the wonderings,
the thoughts and the ponderings
of the people whose lives touch mine.
