In redwood forest

Peace is a sound that's tactile

Reaching to the soul.


The rainforest breathes

An immense being of green

That pulses with life.


These forest depths are

A cathedral made by God

Green roofed gold stillness.


The land calls to me

Come off your safe tame highway

Join our wild freedom!

Tricia, that was absolutely terrific! I don't wear hats so I will take my red socks off (briefly) in your honour - I hope this is acceptable, and anyway, it's the thought that counts :)

Gayla holds her nose
She wonders about that smell...
OH! It's just Rob's feet! ;-)

(Just kidding! :-) We've missed you Rob!)

Thanks for the kind words, Rob and Mebs! I gotta run... but I'll add some next time I'm by (and I'll try not to be another week +)!

Aspen leaves flutter

Bright silver on gold and green

Brilliant autumn hues.

Bright emerald streak

Flashing outside my window

Hummers have returned!

So that's where they get to?!!! :-)


Silent cathedral

Huge pillars reaching skyward

Redwood forest peace.


I was remembering how lovely it was, again today.

The splendor of fall...
Bright red, orange and yellow.
God's beauty shines forth!

Ooooh..Gayla!!! ((((Applauds!!!))))

I second Kritter's applause!!

Here're some from a weekend retreat we just had (remember we get cold weather much earlier here than y'all do)!


Wind sings in the trees / Empty branches rub and groan / Sadly harmonize.


Grey skies hide sun's warmth / Whitecaps ruffle dull lake's peace / Winter's touch in wind.


White tree trunks gleaming / Bright blue skies with soft white clouds / Lake mirrors glory.
