Flabbergasted: A Bayou Morning



Observing the bayou

flabbergasted by the beauty of the day

mist over the water

as a duck makes its way


Slow ripples in the water

as the wind blows

picturesque as a painting

the ripples have a glow


The grass begins to sway

featuring colors of yellow and gold

filtered sun makes them shine

it is bold


A kayak enters the bayou

hoping to catch some rays

slowly paddling 

taking in the day


Another water bird

waddling in the banks

searching for food

bayou is a fish tank


The mist burns off

as the sun filters through

another beautiful morning

as life is renewed
