Go Tell It to the Creek

Gather up your treasures,

your love, your gold, your sorrows,

gather them in your arms

and run them to the creek

that runs through everything.

Show it to the water,

to the ripples, to the stream,

the creak under the stair as you

tread over, like a living, breathing thing,

show it to the creek –

under the world, under the grass,

run them to the creek, those treasures,

show them, hold them,

and the creek will tell you all you

need to hear in its words of quiet gurgles

and steady splashes, about those treasures

and the real ones.
