Heart Leaves a Trace


ghosts' rocky path where  

nothing is left but the wind  

heart leaves a trace  



First settled in the late 1790s, Rocky Springs grew from a watering place along the Natchez Trace, and took its name from the source of that water - the rocky springs.

In 1860, a total of 2,616 people lived in this area covering about 25 square miles.  

Today it is a ghost town that is a segment of the Natchez Trace National Scenic Trail, Mississippi, USA.  

This heart-shaped stone called to me.

It prompted me to imagine the 1,000's of people who walked on this path.
