Bayou

Bayou

A full moon
glints through
Swamp Willow
and a reticent
breeze
whispers
its secrets
only to the night

Burning sun
concedes to
a heavy, hanging,
suffocating
atmosphere
as the 
cricket chorus
begins

Beaded sweat
gathers quickly
on weary foreheads
and fans rotate
stagnant air
in wretched rooms
Relief
Impossible
Elusive

Quickly - Word TheDay
