I go down to the creek Where the water gurgles Joyfully As it hurries along Over the shining sand and pebbles To its destiny With the sea. Dappled sunlight Flits and moves Across the water, over the creek bank, And the birds sing happily To the accompaniment Of insects and crickets. I sit in silence as I soak it all into my soul. Peace flows From the water To my heart. Whatever life brings me I now can face Because of this, My sitting down place!
