Louisiana

Heading east, after Arizona,
through New Mexico and
past the wide Lone Star state,
greens shade from dull to bright --
the desert was pale pastels
and heat devoid of moisture.
Here, humid bayou flora flourish
in black and steamy soil
where hurricanes hit the coast,
winds flatten sugar cane,
and two rich-brown nutrias
cross a placid canal.
Their wakes, on the still surface,
are clean, and nearly perfect,
inverted V's.

    Descriptions are marvelous...., although, can't imagine the terror and havoc and the heartbreak of the hurricane's aftermath! Great poem! (ps...thanks for catching my "Oh Susanna error...lol....Susanna might not like being called "old!" :) Thanks again...I don't know what I was thinking!
