  • Taskinas Creek

    Ominous dark clouds and periods of heavy rain
    Storm season begins with a tornado watch for the south
    Below the broad James River and up to it’s wide mouth
    Water, rain, a giver of life, having the living to sustain
    So much for one to behold even on a dark stormy day
    Spring finally announcing it’s arrival in various ways

    Upon a high bank overlooking Taskinas Creek
    An opening in the laurel providing just enough room
    For a few old gnarled dogwoods swiftly to bud and bloom
    Beautiful locations discovered and always more to seek
    All along this meandering creek quite a spectacular scene
    Both densely wooded banks suddenly awash in green

    Here most every year giving thanks to the mother
    New life and old growth with the coming of Spring
    Ready to revel in this fine season and all it will bring
    Joyfully put into words and then described to another
    Today I happily gazed out at the wild green distance
    Upon this high bank, quite content in my insouciance

    Wind, swaying boughs, undulations of tall marsh grass
    The regional weather conditions associated with this season
    Then there are ways Mother Nature transcends practical reason
    As far as I know sometime before evening this storm will pass
    With the storm’s passing I have a few other places to go
    Sunlight reflecting upon wet leaves, a weird green glow
