Green Temples of Florida

Maya Ellenson authors essays and art columns, but she also likes to write unorthodox and prose poetry.

Lush Green Temples

Random shadows,

Skipping around

As you tread upon the sidewalk's

Sun-blistered skin.

Spanish moss droops

Like silvery tears

to redeem the road's pain.

Florida shade trees--

Lush green temples

To bow your head to.
