Summer on the Bayou


Glancing across the bayou

admiring the reflection of the sun

humidity and the temperature rising

taking a morning run


Dew sparkling on the trees

sweat running down my face

trying to complete my run

training for a race


Jumping in the water 

grateful for a cool dip

splashing in the waves

salt on my lips


Resuming the run

time for breakfast by the bay

hot eggs and bacon

the morning special of the day


Living on the bayou

beauty across the land

frogs and birds singing

crickets joining the band


Time to go about the day

cars crossing the bridge

grateful for the gift of life

living on the edge
