Redwoods

A path leads through a redwood forest.
Giants tower around me exuding their strength and presence.
Their passage thru time is marked in their being.
They stand, they proclaim, “I still am.”

I sense the deep sustenance
It nourishes my body, relaxes and bathes me in its untold wisdom.
I walk through a winding path that leads to a clearing.
The silence is ruptured by a song, a whoosh of moving leaves.
Sun filters through the towering monoliths and kisses my upturned face.

The silence without entwines the silence within.
