Resurrection Creek

by Terrence Sykes

walking along the bank
of this creek
first days of spring
winter naked trees
unable to name
in their leaflessness
ash beech  birch
dogwood  maple mulberry
summer will rise &
names will be given to each
autumn pentecostal banner
soon my winter will come
silently lay me down
amongst these woods
place  an acorn in my hand
I shall rise a mighty oak
