Maya Ellenson likes to improvise in zen poetry as she basks in Florida's parks and wildlife.
landing on the parking lot
connecting up and down
fox tail palms
of a sidewalk
nonchalant with all its blisters
on the palm’s smooth leaves
bowing to Earth
In the Parking Lot

Lora, thanks a lot for reading and your kind, insightful comment!

I really like your poem, Maya. I like the style that you use and the way the poem flows.
The poem seems to be intimating that nature is more enduring than structures build by mankind and there’s a consciousness about nature as well, particularly shown in this line, "on the palm’s smooth leaves bowing to earth.” Thank you for writing it and I loved the pictures of the beautiful Sandhill cranes too.

What a great work demonstrating our need to recognize and love our planet, much as majestic cranes do. Even as we utilize cranes to go higher and higher with our endeavors in concrete and steel, it is Earth we stand upon. It is our parking lot because we have yet to fly any place else despite our drive.
