Murray Creek Impressions 2010

Entry for 19 August 2010:

The haiku form seems to work well for writing about Murray Creek, especially now, when it is so quiet and peaceful.


Late summer stillness

Deer eat brush just below house

Nature fills our space.


Leave all that behind

Labyrinth knows what matters

Arrive at center.


Old trail above creek

First time cleared in many years

Heart must follow now.


Unpicked all summer

Wild blackberries that yield easiest

To hand taste so sweet.


Before he left, my

Brother removed dam from creek

Water finds new place

Tree branch reflects in still water.


Dusk: we wait for owls

Their low cries come up from creek

Suddenly fill the trees.
