Flash 55 Friday, It's Great to Be in New Orleans, October 14, 2010

Flash 55 Friday, It's Great to Be in New Orleans, October 14, 2010

I could see the Mississippi,
From my vantage window seat,
And pictured years so long ago,
When I'd partied on Bourbon Street.

I was just about eighteen,
And filled with such delight,
Nursing school in New Orleans,
Was more than just all right!!

Tonight, our class reconvenes,
And remembers why we love New Orleans!

I am participating in Mr. G-Man's Flash 55.


  1. I like to read your poems loudly.

    Thank you

  6. Hi Carmen, how was your BD? I lived in New Orleans for quite some time. I missed it. Always wanting to take my children to Mardi Gras. I can't wait, one day...this will happen.

  7. I'd be at Felix's Oyster Bar...
    Or the Central Grocery.
    Thanks for playing today Carmen.
    Have a Hurricane for me...
