Louisiana Bayou

Chilly late October;
early morning fog banks
the roadside, cloaks
a trickling bayou...
in the thickets of dense trees,
the wispy tufts 
top man-high
goldenrod, Queen Anne's lace,
dried-out thistle stalks...
A school bus, solitary,
yellow, slowly passes
on skinny black asphalt
where wet spots reflect
the newly risen sun.
Only rustles of high,
green cane fields and 
intermittent bird songs
interrupt pervasive quiet...
Timelessness, and solace --
calming, soothing --
a Louisiana bayou:
Bayou Sale.

    you paint a picture with the words, another world, where fly the birds, and natures tune is strummed, into Aussie's heads is drummed, Crocs and Sharks will eat you chum, but the new chums, aint perturbed? they get eaten like a nerd, where the Sand-Goannas run:) sometimes ...

    Each area has its own special feeling. Never been to Louisiana but it's on my list of places to see.
