Ancient Angel Oak - haiku
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Ancient Angel Oak

may be 1500 years

venerable age

 

live oak tree survives

on a barrier island

65 feet tall

 

millenium tree

located on Johns Island

South Carolina

 

Abraham's land grant

passed through marriage through the Waight

ran out of male heirs

 

Martha was a Waight

she married Justis Angel

year was 1810

 

stories it could tell

lifeline to the earth and time

small acorn - huge tree

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
