Take The Creek


Sounds of the creek
run deep in our valley, a
heartbeat hidden pulsing
vast energies reined
beneath stratum tamed
to the tangible

Waking to belief by
charming me placed
my feet beside the creek
apace; I’ve lived to
be the dream’s
ethereal reality

We’re children of our
dams and creeks, our
bloodlines intertwine in
waterways and lakes;
stray to cities if you need
but take the creek!
