Poetry Blog by Jill Ashforth (Edinburgh Botanical Gardens)
I sat in the shade of the Giant Sequoia
and it seemed as if I'd been transported to a summer's day.
Only the snowdrops reminded me it was still winter.
Tears filled my eyes as I embraced the soft, burnt umber bark.
I breathed in its life force as I lay my soft pink flesh on its woody flesh.
Time stood still
and I felt blessed.
