As I sit and watch the creeks perfect flow
Tadpoles swimming with the turtles so slow
I feel a breeze brush across my face
I look around at this beautiful place

Sun shining down giving warmth while you wade
Trees all around to provide some shade
Two small waterfalls continue to replenish
The water in the creek when it starts to diminish

I go to the big rock that sits in the creek
I watch the deer, beautiful and meek
As I look to see across the water
I enjoy the site of the beautiful otter

The wind is blowing the trees do sway
The sun still shinning on a beautiful day
Tensions gone my heart did release
I cannot move for my bodyís at peace

I finally get up go for a hike
Walking along I see some pike
I walk through the creek and back on land
Keep walking along enjoying nature so grand

Time has passed, night is here
Back to the rock that's so near
The site at night so beautiful to see
The sounds even better, itís serenity

I lay on the rock and count the stars
Nature getting louder from afar
The lightning bugs amazing to see
Twinkling like the stars, both in such beauty

But now its time to leave this place
My heart pounds it starts to race
Home to bed to dream of tomorrow
Leaving this place I feel such sorrow

I close my eyes and see my place
My body's relaxed with a smile on my face
Until the next day does arrive
My hidden creek will continue to thrive!

Catherine, you did a nice peice of flowing poetry, not at all overdone, even in lenght...
I live in beautiful places you described...everything you wrote is hard for some to comprehend(no disrespect) but, in the country, this could be written straight from a true experience...nicely done, imagery was great,
I could feel you take me away...

"Awsome", Thats all I can say. This is another fine piece of art work you have painted. Very nicely done. The very reason you should never give up on painting. (Cuz ya do it so well)I can feel the ice cold water running across my feet now. Again very nicely done.
