Tribute to John Muir

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.
