Jackson Square has many hidden wonders
As the morning fog climbs over the river banks.
When the sun opens old musky building cracks
When the cobblestone walk raises from its grave.
A breeze moves in bringing a touch of rain
Turning the smell of night to a fresh new day.
There’s a naked body moving down the alley
Leaving behind a senseless craving of desire.

Jackson Square N.O. Dec 2014-Edit-5-art-blogFoggy Morning In Jackson Square, New Orleans — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Christmas on the Square
Lights of the night are now out
Only red remains.

The fog settles low
After the celebrations
Hugs you to the bone.

Clouds hide the morning sun
cobblestones still wet
from a passing shower —
the poet is sighing.

The cathedral bells ring
pigeons flying off
leaving their home —
the poet is sighing.

I can lose myself
in the French Quarter
in an endless embrace —
the poet is sighing.

The deep darkness
of alleys behind iron gates
guarding tropical courtyards —
the poet is sighing.

There goes a jazz tune
from a lone musician
not seen, but heard —
the poet is sighing.

We make our way
down to the square where
artists hang their painting —
the poet is signing.

Morning life in the square
repeats again and again
the movement of generations —
the poet is signing.

A child of the mist
catches my attention
in my camera’s eye —
the poet is signing.

We bookmark each moment
looking at you again,
Renaissance and me —
the poet is signing.
