Night time

You hear that silence deafen the darkness

Walking across the street

A leaf fell down from the trees
Where the streetcar passes the corner
Of Napoleon and St Charles
And through the sounds of bus passing

I lit my cigarette and stared

Every time I blink
I blank out to the beauty before me

Moon lit sidewalk
Blanketed in blue black shades

In the cracks
The litter of the past day.

And the wind
Softer than bird wings
Rustle here and there

Dead night

No whistling
That would bring ghost

Look at the star that glows between the branches
Somewhere on Napoleon

immortalising moments

this has great atmospherics, a wonderful poem to take you somewhere and show you something... then you can just stand there and... exhale...

thank you for preserving and sharing this moment with your reader, changing the experience from ephemeral to eternal… cool.

New Life in New Orleans
It has been said that New Orleans hasn't seen much improvement since the hurricane, but Bran, you bring the Crescent City back to life like never before with your soulful Southern verse. I, being a Louisiana native myself, feel every word of this poem.
