Heaven on Earth

Crickets and cicadas outside my window,
the electric nature drone 
of a bayou-breathed background--
fan overhead cools the delicious air
with a quiet hum,
like the tune of a song I know
from long ago....

visiting friends in New Orleans;
photos from their house across Lake Pontchartrain along
the Bogue Falaya.  


  1. Beautiful, Jody. Can you see why everything moves slower down here?

    1. Ahhhhhhh, Patricia. Not only can I see why things move slower but I can FEEL it....my energy is pretty much nil when I'm outside--just wanna sit on the porch and read :-)
