This was written on my day off, enjoying the outside music at the Gazebo Cafe during the Jazz Festival. It was a magic Sunday.

Sitting here on Decater Street
Listening to the Blues
Sipping down Jambalaya Juice
Trying to catch a groove
Magic blooms in colors here
People exuding their auras
Hiding every ounce of tears
For a fading heart_ what horror!
Red beans and rice
Dogs dining in with the guests
Frosted drinks, a Hurricane
All New Orleans best
This mystery city competes today
With a living Hell
Placing a beat back into a heart
Just where a blossom fell
Its magic what a city can do
To a broken heart
With music and color and laughter
It brings together what's been ripping apart
The soul of a woman in sufferage
Who loves laughing as well as the Blues
Who sits with the smile of an angel
While walking in others' shoes
This city can make into miracles
The oozing of hearts torn to Hell
Color in the hole that is missing
Just where a blossom fell.

Sounds emit from your words. Blusey and sad and exotic. Sweetness dappled with a bit of downhome spice is what I smell as you tarry beneath the magnolia tree. I hear the words. I taste the words. Doesn't everyone?
