View from Beyond the Lanai

Ken Allan Dronsfield

Sugar cane flowing like ocean waves
the Gulf winds blow as egrets hunt lunch
tapestry woven in a wildness of saw grass
buzzards perch high on branches of oak
dragonflies rest upon blades of palmetto
unscrupulous clouds build to a tempest
horizontal rains pelt all within the bayou
saunters by quickly; sun now reappears.
Spanish moss drips from Cypress trees
curtains of humidity hold a damp grip
songbirds fluttering, the gators cruising;
in a great Florida swamp; days roll slow.
a muskrat swims in the calming waters
a pinkish haze envelops the twilight sky
Great Blue Herons stand in stoic repose
neighbors wave while cooking barbecue
the kids are busy flying kites in the breeze
we enjoy the View from Beyond the Lanai.
