Walking the Creek

A poem by Genelle Morain

If dimensional pleasure is something you seek,
I suggest you get out and start “walking the creek.”
It’s true we’ve no sidewalks (of those we’re bereft)
But our streets are quite safe if you walk on the left.
You can wear what you please; there’s no rule as to style,
Who cares about “fashion” when you’re walking a mile?
The wildlife is friendly – no panther or bear;
No wild boars or rattlers to give you a scare.
Our avian neighbors – from hummers to hawks,
Will furnish sweet music (and occasional squawks).
You’ll see blossoming bushes and flowering trees.
Honeysuckle and lilac will float on the breeze.
Contrails and clouds provide art in the sky.
Take time to philosophize: Who? What? and Why?
You’ll greet old friends and new (some with dogs) on your walk,
And you may wish to pause for a neighborly talk.
(But if you’re timing your heartbeat and counting each mile,
Just give a wave of the hand and a Cedar Creek smile).
You’ll be happier, healthier, every day of the week
If you join with your friends and start walking the Creek.
