sitting inside The Hovel musing
leisurely observing
the bayou’s unhurried passing
no skinny dipping
in those waters
gators don’t’cha know
with sweet Zoe by my side
know I’m not alone
I am merely in seclusion
silently communicating
with the charisma and attraction
of my environment
listening to Bayou Lafourche
imparting her secrets
I listen in rapture
of pirates daring
who sailed these waters
so long ago
I close my eyes
feeling a soft swell
as though
I was aboard a pirate ship
dagger in my teeth awaiting
soon to be plundering
gold doubloons
ah . . .
Zoe’s wet and cold nose
caused me to open my eyes
realized I was sittin’ in The Hovel
not a pirate ship
no dagger clenched ‘tween
my teeth
sighing I drink what was left
of the cheap California burgundy
and when I fell into bed
I dreamed
of that pirate ship
and my share
of all those gold doubloons
stashed in the ship’s hole

Down in your part of the world Mr. Bolton, I'd wager folks still talk about Jean Lafitte and his escapades.

Your great story had me wondering...Any connection between you two? Are we safe here at Pip?

Pass the Glade if you're going to do that here...

I don't know how safe you are, but no connection to Jean Lafitte.

Great piece, my friend. Know wherefor you come!

If it wasn't for sweet dreams sometimes, misery would gain a foothold and not let go.

Enjoyed much...

Yeah you're right, jwesley, and I have had quite enough misery to last me. Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment.
