Mardi Gras
Beads – purple, green, and yellow fly all around
The music blares and trumpets sound as I walk down the streets during Mardi Gras
People scream overhead from apartment rooftops as I look up at the sky all around
The smell of food hits my olfactory sense as I walk down to the parade
Kids run all around as they enjoy the festivities and cheer
Floats fifteen feet and higher go down the street as they help illuminate the sky
As I look at the people on the float laugh and throw beads, I smile
The kids catch beads and throw them around their necks as they reach for more
Out of the corner of my eye I see restaurants all around
My nose finds the smell of beignets as I walk closer to them
Jambalaya, Alligator, and Duck all hit my nose as the parade passes down the street
More floats come down with the parade – all having different themes
Nearby, small advertisements can be spotted on small sections stretched across the floats
Unmistakably, I hear jazz music being played as I move down the street with the parade
Trumpets, along with trombones, fill the air with their sounds followed by a saxophone
Taking this all in, I continue to look around
Fireworks begin to illuminate the sky as the parade slowly begins to come to an end
I see children running around with beads and smiles
I see adults smiling with food in their mouths as they laugh and joke around
I see musicians collaborating music together as they allow their sound to play out
My heart is warmed because for one night the world has come together to be a happier place
