The Redwood Forest

                                      The Redwood Forest

Standing tall, tops in the mist,
Red giants from another time.
Remembering the birth of Christ,
Looking now at modern Man.

The forest floor in muted silence,
Filtered light finds the rhododendron.
God’s original cathedral soars,
A place to find peace and beauty.

Walk awhile with past history,
Place your hand upon the bark.
Look up, almost glimpsing infinity,
Look down, see mans tracks upon the earth.

Forests once tracking vast vistas,
Now a rare and silent treasure.
Man’s greed at last held back.
My home, my heart, my hope.

This is repost..thought it would work for the " In the Woods" contest.

    This is a wonderful poem.The forest and old trees are being cut down at a fast rate. Some of these trees are centuries old and what a shame to cut them down. love phyl
