Sound/Smell Ku

The tornado that hit New Orleans last week passed a few miles from my home at 3:30 a.m. I just felt the some effects of it.

hard raindrops
in my dream -
hailstorm wakes me

blowing wind
not the hurricane sound

With the Mardi Gras season in full swing, more people are in my neighborhood, because it's close to the start of the parade routes. People also invite family and friends to spend some time in the city.

smell of warmth -
barbecue grill
cooking hamburgers

jazzy song-
marching band

celebration at midnight
muscians' notes at
corner bar

police sirens-
make way for the
carnival floats
