Blues Fest for Blogophilia 24.4

Johnny Winter

strumming guitar

clapping hands

in big tent


streets closed

city echoes  blues music

sweat, beer and smoke


through the air 


strumming guitar

hands a clapping


salty lips

need more water  


rotten humidity

a wet wool blanket

bearing down 

fibers go up nose

and stifle


strumming guitar

hands a clapping


tent vibrates

drone of the crowd


bobbling  heads

jiggling  butts –

first one cheek then the other

dancin’ in rhythm

to the sound


plenty of eye candy

always a treat


the blues

what’s mine is yours


guitar strums

hands clap


rain forecast 

not a drop


people jam packed

like berries in the jar

singing the blues

hands clapping

feet stomping


I was fascinated by all the different hats

Here. Take a look








check out the guys standing also

this was the prettiest one
