A Stream Runs Through It ... In Leelanau

A little stream runs fast and clear through Empire Village.

Flowing from a spring-fed pond, ...

It turns a waterwheel and tumbles over ancient rocks, 

On its way to South Bar Lake.

And from there to Lake Michigan.

Sometimes I stare at the rushing water, 

As if in a trance,

Captivated by the sight and sound of it.

Sometimes I dream of the stream ....

And in my dreams,

Drink from the cool, swirling pools along its bank.

And sometimes, ...

I just envy the little stream.

For it knows exactly what to do,

And where to go ...

In life.

See You In Leelanau Up North,

                    Visit A Leelanau Landmark:  The little stream in Empire Village
                    - forever flowing next to the Empire House Bed & Breakfast on 
                    Lacore Street.  Look for the waterwheel amidst the cedar trees.
