Poetry - The Bayou

Updated on July 21, 2010

The Bayou

 The raging river

rolls over the logs

The leaves of the trees

are revealed

through the fog

 The water creeps

through the trees

in the bayou

I am haunted by

the thoughts of you

 The bayou beckons

Its loneliness calls

The trees in the bayou

form narrow halls

I navigate the maze

in my modest boat

I leave the bayou

where it flows

to the unsettled river

trying my best

to stay afloat
