*before the storm (a haibun) 12.27

*before the storm (a haibun) 12.27

coral quarry
ancient remains
of when
life was under
the sea
just a few feet
of soil for the
hammock of trees
so seek fresh water
from the fossil reef
at the state park
where the guide
gave us a tour
and the mosquitoes
dined on my flesh…

morning hours spent
stepping in history’s key
Flaglers’ trains…now gone

(c) JP/dh

* The quarry was worked, before the hurricane
of 1935 destroyed the rails…
Now the area is a State Park.
