Spring: Morning on the Bayou


Across the horizon

a new day begins

nature joyfully singing

the fog is thin


Kayaking along the bay

a fish jumps high

thrashing around

with others nearby


Squirrels in the trees

leaving a nest

jumping around

running without rest


Sea gulls in the air

playing aerial games

enjoying the wind

no manuever is the same


Calmness abound

renewal of the soul

sun sparkles on the water

new tales to be told


Stopping now

time to grab a bite

feeling blessed this morning

everything is just right
