Live Oaks Retain Life

live oaks retain life

November the joyous month

southern doors flung wide

thankful for reprieve from heat

we walk in the midday sun

November is the most beautiful month in Florida.  It is a time of returning to life and being outside; this is our season of life.

Aye; Eyes

In faces we see years, or the lack thereof, tones of skin, lips of color and grin stretching out to welcome us or drawn tight to hide away the pain of days and nights, winters and spring, of living too much or not enough, walking the path to the river or the River, the dip of birth or the dip of death, the planting or harvesting, and as we walk by them, in the water, in the grass, in the tree or air, it is not in their faces that the story lies, it is in their eyes, their eyes, their eyes.

Eyes looking outward

Skeptical angry or no

The tale is thereby told

We are writing Haibuns over at dVerse tonight.  Join us!
