Bayou Diaries: The Cars

The cars pass on the avenue
hum & whoosh, snippets of music
the trees take no notice
leaf still & silent

I am here to see the trees
my only daily companions
searching for their secret
of unperturbed stillness

in which pursuit the cars
are a useful distraction
they come, & pass, are gone
a lesson for my squirrely mind

Let the thoughts pass me by
like the path vanishing
with each step deeper into
the the overarching grove
