dirt, mud, creek

from

 

6 Jan 12

 

I did love the creek

polluted though it was

 

I loved its wet crack

 

I would dig into the dirt

and mud and sand and peat

 

build damns and canals and

lake lagoon cities

 

linked by waterside roads

 

where the Aztecs rang their

coffee can drum

 

when the Spaniards

attacked

  1. This brought me back to my younger years, remembering the joys of “my creek” …. as I grow older, childhood memories often bring a smile to my lips and a warmth in my heart 🙂
