Foliage

tall-trees-canopy-forest

What’s with the mustache?
(Silence)
Have you ever shaved it off?
(Pause) No.
How long have you had it?
(Pause) It’s older than you are.
Really?
(Silence)
Why don’t you shave it off?
(Silence)
So. Why don’t you shave it off?
(Pause) It’s foliage.
(Pause.) What?
(Silence) (I catch the stare. Then the flash of understanding, of empathy. The eyes avert. The awkward step backward to create space.)
Smiling,
I turn my back and walk away.

  6. What a towering tree
    Talks about the fascination to be at the top
    from this angle below
    we look up to see
    how all trees meet their heads
    talk and listen with rustling leaves
    chirping birds
    foliage in mystical setting is calling to feel free
    with fresh soothing breeze ๐Ÿ™‚
