                      Ode to the Bayou 


   The mandarin sky melts , 

   Skipping along with ebb and flow .

   Bouquets of wild Hibiscus fill the air . 
   Just as the sun begins to set low . 

   Nature's water garden is profuse 

   with Wildflowers .       
   Swap Irises in shades of blue , 

   Cattails standing tall .          
   An alligator lies in the sun near the banks .


   Under the Lily pads , 

   There lurks croaking Bullfrogs .

   While the snakes , slither in a shallow brine .


   Birds feathers brushed against , 

   The pastel light . 
   I pause awhile to gaze at this scene . 
   Where the twilight paints a lilac sky . 

   I return to my cottage in the bayou , 

   Where the purple pea pods sprawl . 
   In bloom wisteria curls cry , 

   And bright yellow bees crawl . 

   Oh , for I love the Bayou . 
   The beauty of nature , 

   Caressed with the swampland dreams ..........

The rhythms of the bayou resonate in my mind . Nature is beautiful in its own ways ..........
