Grove

The grove of redwoods;
Silent, an ancient stillness,
Soothing and serene --
I once saw a goddess there,
Eyes of night and starlight hair.

    Reading your work today..I grew up in the Humboldt Co. Ca, In the middle of the redwoods. The mmom shining through the redwoods can really look like starlight hair. I love you work. BG
