   The Unknown Creek

The stream is new, an unknown creek.
It piques my curiosity.
The narrow winding turns bespeak
its gentle sinuosity.

Between the banks I softly pass,
alders leaning in the flow.
Flowers fair in emerald grass
nod and wave as on I go.

Birdlets sing
then take wing
as down the dappled stream I float.
Violets sprout,
and silver trout
dart and quiver neath my boat.

Adventure calls
down sunlit halls.
I live my fondest dream.
I'm free at last,
there is no past.
My future is the stream.

 Nanook of the Nashwaak 
 Reach out and touch a rock

Juncture, Cross Creek
