tallest living things

 walk with me into one of the world's last remaining 
ancient coast redwood forests....


pictures cannot convey the power and presence of the giant redwoods!
they are: magical, majestic, regal, and reaching to the skies!
i am: humble, ant-like and awe-struck in this mighty forest.   

i'm finally getting around to posting pictures from our trip to
california and oregon. i hope you enjoy this glimpse of the
john muir national monument located north of san francisco.
(i wanted to take the chipmunk home with me.)


  1. Oh, how wonderful. Someday I will get there!!! ( and thanks for little surprises :)

  4. You're looking quite sprit-like beneathe those mammoth trees!
    I remember when that tree fell and all the talk of the mystery behind it. So so cool.
    I was thinking about you, beach combing, salty air, nothing but miles of shore and sea. How you were feeling being in a place so opposite to your prairie. Trading sage for sanddollars.
    Sounds like a heavenly trip. ;)

    1. i had not heard about the falling tree! we had a moment! greg wrote some movements for an ensemble. the performers, Equinox Trio, wanted a 5th movement for their performance at next year's New Music Fest, so we knew this would be my 5th haiku and greg's composition!

      i love the idea of trading sage for sand dollars! :)

  5. Thanks for cleaning up my mishaps! Duh...;)
