A puddle was an amount of liquid concentrated in one small area.

In 2268, following several phaser shots ordered by Spock, Montgomery Scott commented, "That Vulcan won't be satisfied till these panels are a puddle of lead." (i.e. Spock would continue firing until the control panels melted.) (TOS: "The Paradise Syndrome")

In 2364, Tasha Yar reported that security team two found a puddle of blood outside the guest quarters assigned to the Selay delegation. (TNG: "Lonely Among Us")
