Footprints in the Snow

(Thoughts on Transaction Theory)

Waves that travel faster than light
Catch up with the past beyond our sight,
Return from tomorrow to show us, today,
The path they have beaten for us – the way.
The road we must take already decided,
We follow the tracks that time has provided.
Tomorrow, making safe today
With the help of yesterday,
Creates each present moment, guides
Where past and future meet, collide,
Counting to zero, the way to go
Following footprints in the snow.
