“Down On the Bayou” — Images by kenne

A lone cloud moves by
collecting others
as the day warms up
over the east Texas swamp.

Here’s the thing,
if you desire
to go on a bayou
nature walk

bring mosquito spray
and a small cooler
of Saint Arnold beer
to watch swamp critters —

alligators,
deer,
nutria,
otters,
bobcats,
coyotes,
and many species of snakes
and birds.

Without cat-like patience
spotting wildlife
can be nearly invisible
to the naked.

It sounds like a vacation spot:
Eagle Point.
But let’s call it what it is
a place where family rules.

We.
Would.
Not.
Be.
Here.
If not for the family.
