My Writing: A Personal Essay Revisits

Since it is rice harvest season I decided to revisit my personal essay. Now, I will move on from my personal essay.

Haunted Fields

From dawn to dust, he walks the lonely fields, each day
With his shovel over his shoulder.
He checks for thing astray in the fields.
Those whom recognized him remarks,
He hasn’t grown old since the day,
they first got together with him.
He, still wears his old straw cowboy hat
Blue faded long sleeves shirt and pants.
He still wears his green hip boots.
To walk in the murky water of the rice field
Now, he does not speak to many.
Plenty, have spoken with him in the predawn hours.
From words, He wanders in the distance rice fields.
They recognize his shovel over his shoulders.
Others caught sight of him driving an old John Deere tractor with plow,
in a field but disappears in their presence.
The only visible sign of him, being here is a single distant
sound of a John Deere tractor’s steam whistle in twilight sky.
No one understands why he walks the fields.
If they knew, they will shed a tear.
Someday, his journey for his family’s crest
will be over for him.
Until, then he never rest.

After searching for photo I decided to share one of my favorite photo of my Dad.

A Cajun rice farmer for 50 something years.

Have a nice weekend 🙂

My Photo: A Hummingbird’s Visit

Okay, I took these photo shots last week. I have to admit these photos came out okay. Even though, I took these photo shots from indoors.

This little hummingbird paid a nice visit

 

This was once lucky photo shot.

 

Take a closer look.

I was looking out the window, when I noticed this little hummingbird.  I hurried for my camera and hoped this little hummingbird did not fly away. Sure, enough the hummingbird was still in the Mamou tree.  🙂

This hummingbird was busy.

 

Once this little hummingbird was finish. It flew away.

 

 

Have a nice week!  🙂

 

My Photo: A Visit From November and December

Okay, as I look back on 2016, I realize I have accomplish two of my goals for 2016. I learned an important lesson on non-writer friends. I can listen to their opinion, but I do not need to follow their advice. I am a writer and nothing they says will get me discourage into not writing.(Oops! I got off the subject.)

Anyway, here is my favorite photos from November and December.

 

I watched as the clouds as they changed color.

My thoughts takes me miles away.

I wish I was in a far off place I writing.

Now, I could not leave my November’s without sharing these photo shots of the Moon. I have to admit my Moon photo shots has improved, since I began taken photo shots of the evening sky.

 

A Novemeber Full Moon

An improvement since my first Full Moon photo shot.

On a quiet November evening. My only complaint. It was not cold. :(

As I said good-bye to November. December came in with a rush. My Birthday was not what I expected, which meant no self photo.  But I did get these nice photo shots.

I have no idea what 2017 will bring for me, but I am hoping for something nice this year.

 

Have wonderful weekend 🙂

My Photo: Memorial Visit From October

Oh yes, in October I took a mini break to a place my Dad would talk about on our vacation to my Grandfather and Grandmother’s home in Southeast Louisiana. Each time we would pass by and on our way back home.

Well anyway, I decided to visit this beautiful place. ( The Cafe serves delicious food, my new favorite is a Muffuletta Sandwich. 🙂

I could just imagine a couple walking along these oak and having a picnic beneath those oak tree.

I can imagine a couple strolling along this oak tree .

My first attempt to capture these lovely oak trees.

If oak trees could talk, they would whisper how a young boy, his brother,his father and his uncles planted them in a straight line and walked from each oak trees in 1940.

Oh, the beautiful oak trees my Dad Loved to talk about. Of course, his father,his uncles and his brother and him were the one who planted these lovely trees back in the late 40’s.

 

I could not leave without a photo shot of this landmark sign.

How time went by fast. The whole tour takes an hour and a half. But for me with camera it would have probably took longer.

Last but not least a view of A beautiful view of Lake Peigneur(It’s French.. Google translator pronounce the name correct.)

A lovely view with a reminder of the past. Y'all see this Lake sit on top of a Salt Dome Mine.

A lovely view with a reminder of the past. Beneath Lake Peigneur is a Salt a Mine.

Now, there is a lot of information on Jefferson Island on Nov 20-21, 1980,which is on YouTube video documentary Lake Peigneur sinkhole disaster

(For anyone who wants to know more about Lake Peigneur. I won’t go into details.)

I always heard about the house that went into the Lake. Well, here's a view of the chimney

Now, I have always heard about a house going into the Lake. This could be the chimney but I am not quite sure.

 

I have to admit these photo shots came out very nice and my favorite ones on my mini break, which, I do not go on often. Maybe in 2017, I will go on another mini break to Rip Van Winkle Gardens. But never know with me.

 

Have a wonderful weekend.  🙂

The next afternoon I venture towards the nest again for more photo shots. Image my surprise when I saw the Killdeer running towards me. It was not until I realized the other grown Killdeer was also chirping away.  I had to look around for before I spotted this little one.

I watched this little one, while Mother Kildeere was chirping away.
