    Oh, they are beautiful! Your poem is a perfect sentiment for the feeling one has when standing at the bottom of a giant sequoia and looking up. BIG SMILE on this one, Brian. Always, Dane Ann

    Steinbeck was always one of my favorite writers, Brian, and this is a great tribute to the common man characters struggling to reach new heights. Excellent cingku! Love, Carolyn

    Yes, they do reach for the stars....so magnificent are they!! Growing up in California, one of my earliest memories is my parents taking a photograph of my brother and I beneath a giant sequoia in Sequoia National Park...and of course there are old photographs of automobiles driving through the hallowed out base of these giants. Unbelieveable if you don't see them for yourselves! They are wonders of the world. ~ Love, Carrie
