Poetry

Heaven on Earth

Crickets and cicadas outside my window,
the electric nature drone 
of a bayou-breathed background–
fan overhead cools the delicious air
with a quiet hum,
like the tune of a song I know
from long ago….


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
visiting friends in New Orleans;
photos from their house across Lake Pontchartrain along
the Bogue Falaya.  

Sharing is caring!

    Ahhhhhhh, Patricia. Not only can I see why things move slower but I can FEEL it….my energy is pretty much nil when I'm outside–just wanna sit on the porch and read 🙂
