The spirit of the South is something that should be shared with everyone. If you haven't experienced a Dixie moment then you need to try.



Bennie wafered sugar
Sweet as molasses
Click of pure crystal
In Mason jar glasses
Honeydew cheeks so sweet
With Southern smiles abundant
An evening in Dixie
Never gets redundant
With Jasmine in the air
Spanish Moss dripping down
The darkness is a welcome
When Southern shades abound

Enjoyed as I remember evenings at Brazos Bend with birds twittering to sleeping places and alligators booming in the rising mist.

I love it when there is such a special feeling you want to share.
All too often it just can't get across the bridge, and my loneliest moments are those when I have to carry the feeling home by myself.
But you have given Southern Shades the perfect wings.
Thanks for sharing that magic.

As always your writes make me long to see and feel the life of the south. I am hoping to go to Texas this fall and I am also so excited about that. Great write that paints a soft picture of warmth and love for your home...

Nicely done, Susan. Been all over Dixie myself and I love it.
God bless.

Highly atmospheric, Susan, and with the absolutely right word choices.

You have very effectively shared the "flavor" of Dixie, Susan; most enticing. Love and best wishes to you,
