Tugboat on the Mississippi River

Delta blues to coastal dreams.
Cotton white to marsh reeds, waving in the sultry breeze.

Rolling semi mountain hills to paper flats.

roosters crowing, chicks growing.

Summer ballfields and winter football,
one-day wiping sweat to jacket warmth.

Deer abounds to catfish frying,
jaw dropping sunrises to take your breath away sunsets.
