Louisiana Scene Unrehearsed




The sun rises with unrehearsed drama
 as an egrets wings its way gracefully
 across the canal saturated
 with lily pads near to bloom.
 Nearby the cypress trees weep
 in Spanish moss along the shoreline---
 their knees rising daintily just above 
the murky water line.
 
A sudden gust of wind carries with it
 the fresh scent of rain falling 
somewhere nearby---
 wafting softly with it the smell
 of vegetation in stages of decay.
 Frogs croaking in the chorus line
 in early celebration of showers
 promised on the morning breeze
 adds a musical touch to the scene.

    You describe your surrounding's with such appreciation and awareness. I wake up and see a coffee pot. Three cups, then I start to see what else is in the world. It's a gift to be content with your surroundings. Here's wishing you peace in your day. :)
