Noise: The Bayou


The morning sun glazes

there is stillness in the air

beauty in the bayou

causing my eyes to stare


A silent breeze

no noise to be found

gentle still water

nature to be unbound


The silence is broken

there are birds diving down

fish are scattering

breakfast has been found


The water and grass of the bayou

supports many types of wildlife

a tender environment

occasionally filled with strife


The tide is rising

as the grass continues to sway

fisherman are arriving

for the catch of the day


The sun is setting

the bayou is going to sleep

there is a beautiful view

where the water and sun meet
