Majestic Oak

 Majestic Oak

majestic oak

once a tiny acorn 

on Union Street 

in Brunswick, Georgia 

now a fortress 

draped in Spanish moss 

sprigs of resurrection fern 

proving 

dormancy is temporary 

you gather your people 

under your arms 

keep their secrets 

shade the sun 

as they 

   talk

      walk 

          picnic 

                live 

                    love 

                         breathe
