Ode to a City (on an anniversary)

 

People come and listen to New Orleans

New Orleans, she is sitting and waiting.

waiting for what…?

why…?

She does not know.

wondering…

why did the wind

blow her way?

 

People when she speaks do you hear her?

New Orleans pleads for your ear.

Will you listen?

Will you come to her?

she is wondering…

will the winds of change

blow her way?

 

peace,
