A little creek with a riffle,
melody the high banks noise filter.
Dragonflies hover mid-air meditation
reeds elongated pose elegance
graceful bullfrogs serenade.
On golden days of deep Summer
Cicadas echo antiphonal song.
Fall is coming soon; before too long
water more slack flow, pools all full
sandbar sprouts myriad wild blooms.
Rusty leaves frolic amid raindrops eddies
Weaver nesting birds migrate home south.
Crawdads scrape homely burrows
Kingfishers at home in bank-side digs:
all have a place at the creek save for me.
