wait ‘n see hangs in thick air  
over bayou  
sliver moon hides herself
behind shakin’ leaves  
loblolly pines peek at silent house
ouaouaron makes big croak  
tellin' tales
herb saint  
day lilies  
give up secret scent  
bayou knows  
what happens tonight

charcoal man
slides long legs from dream sheets    
eyes drink of lady    
shadow hair sleepin'
on pillow  
half moon fingers    
folded under silk cheek  
feel of soft shoulders under his arm  
already missed
  
charcoal man looks
where p'tit boug sleeps  
run and play tucked away
for night  
little feet ready to leave bed  
soon as sunpeek  
     t'char
     mon fils
charcoal man tastes words on tongue  
    my son    
folds wilted calypso blossom  
into small brown hand  
    all I got mon fils

charcoal man
takes Panama from nail  
slips screen door open    
easy like  
slides polished feet off porch
  
lady stirs
dream smells  
cigar
shadow hair spreads
lookin’ for her man  
p'tit boug crushes calypso in fingers  
pitches  
aroma too old  

ouaouaron quiet  
herb saint  
day lilies  
pull back scent
bayou listenin’ to

gone

You make me silent inside as I absorb the beauty of your words and the tale you weave.

I find I sit for several minutes after I read these..
absorbing the story and not wanting them to ever end.
Wish I could write like this, seemingly effortlessly.

Autumn, the year's last loveliest smile~
