The minnows are dreaming
where the water tells its own story
of creek rocks and rolling hills
a little ways further the water pools

The water whispers
a lullaby story
where the creek runs across the rocks
there is a song in the running water

The creek is its own story
unsettled and flowing
you can hear the gurgle of water
a little ways beyond the deep

Cold water settles there
with the unseen flow
in the deeper hole of water
the minnows must be taking a nap
