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

waft

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
