The Hammock


I love the sound of rain
Outside my window
Streaming past,
Down the cobbled street
The sound of thirsty plants drinking
Bugs scurrying
2 dogs, they are not mine
Finding their comfort zone
One in a chair, the other
Under the table,
Saving the hammock for me.


— Zanne Mack


While Zanne Mack may have left her heart in San Francisco she now calls the Costalegre region of Mexico her home. A talented musician, Zanne sings her own compositions while evoking the ghosts of other musical souls when performing on stage in Puerto Vallarta. Her poems have appeared in both Bar None Group anthologies. The Hammock was captured on an autumn day in Barra de Navidad.
