A Summer Night on the Bayou

The moon seems at rest
behind the tree branches
where sits a large owl
perched in silhouette
against its gentle glow.

An occasional splash
can be heard in the bayou
across the roadway
which glimmers like the stars
with moonlit serenity.

Nights warm summer blanket
settles in with nature providing
a clicking nocturnal chorus
reverencing the close 
of yet another day.

Enjoying the solitude
with a pensive afterglow 
of contentment
thankful for the blessings
God has bestowed.

    A simple elegance flows through these words. I would love to pull up a rocker and join you.
