Maya Ellenson likes to improvise in zen poetry as she basks in Florida's parks and wildlife.
Banyan Trees in Lake Worth
The Banyan's Soul
Music of trees
in tree-lined streets
a green-dome whisper
chiming in Florida’s gentle breeze
reaching the sinuous roots-
the banyan’s soul
A Green-dome Whisper

Banyans are magical and mystical Maya. I have spent hours cradled in the arms of such giants in Florida. Thank you for the poetry

Nicely done my friend. I love the trees. They represent what us humans might take as an example to follow and each live more than a hundred years. Blessings. whonu
